I had a Broad Breasted Bronze tom turkey that a friend gave me on my birthday in April. We always planned to butcher him but just hadn't gotten around to it. He was huge! I went out the morning of new year's eve to feed and water the flock, and there he was, dead in the doorway of the coop. Now, we've had super-cold temps for a couple of weeks (below 0 to about 10 degrees above) so the flock had been confined to the coop until a couple days before this happened. Since we were about to leave for work, I pulled him out, put him up, and went to work. I'm sure he was frozen solid within minutes. Anyway, our temps stayed below 15 degrees until late yesterday, when the Chinooks blew in and the temps began to rise. They got to about 35 early last night and hovered there until this morning, when they started to rise to the low 40's it is now. I had planned on cutting the tom open in an attempt to figure out what happened to him. His breasts were HUGE, and still partially frozen. Legs and thighs were partially frozen too. It appears he had a heart attack, as his heart was partially detached! My question is this: do you think it would be safe to eat this meat? His gizzard was full of grain and gravel, his liver was huge, no sign of any worm infestation. We brought the breast meat in and cleaned it up--looks fine. The barn cats are having a late feast on the rest of the carcus. Thoughts? If nothing else, I'll give the rest of the meat to the cats. Thanks for your help and input.
