    So today when we processed our five week old Cornish X Roos, two of them had some greenish coloring on the skin/flesh near one of the wings? The inside of the birds looked normal, no problems I could see.

    One of them fell out of the killing cone (cut down traffic cone.)

    A Bruise, or something else? Safe to eat? The whole bird any of it?

    Thanks.

    cut the green out; it's flesh that was damaged & didn't get enough oxygen. don't eat it.

    Both of the areas are about quarter sized. I will section those birds and cut out those areas.

    Other then that area, you would think the chickens are OK to eat?
