Hi all, first post on this site. Hoping for a little information. We have a flock of meat chickens that are about two weeks from processing time. I have noticed two of them have really thick legs (like they're swollen). I have removed these two from the flock a few days ago in the hopes that the "swelling" would go down, but unfortunately, it persists. What I though were sickly birds I now believe to be birds with broken legs. They are very active still, free ranging around our yard. My questions are; 1. Are these chickens safe to process and eat subsequently? 2. How can I be absolutely certain that they are broken legs and not something (again, they seem fine on the outside... eating, drinking, walking (read "limping") around etc.? 3. Should I cull them?
