    So, I just culled my hen with Ascites and lice. It was for the best and she went painlessly
    I am still unsure if I can eat her or feed her to my animals. She had a pretty bad bubble and I'm pretty sure it's from heart & liver failure (I live at a high elevation where that is usually the cause). Would her inability to process toxins out make her bad to eat?
    Thanks

    Having seen the inside of birds like that, I certainly wouldn't risk. That stuff's nasty.
