Don't listen to her...her time frame is whacked. It wasn't long.Its hard to tell. He also could have started to bloat if it took you a while to process him. From cone to naked to empty belly for me is less than 10 minutes. Also, if he wasn't fasted first the intestines would be bigger.
I think it’s treats but I haven’t fed them any in a while except one teeny handful of popcorn last week so I’m not sure. I think he must have found some stuff while free ranging. Idk what though.So, what makes a chicken fatty? Too much food? I know stupid? But I have heard to let them eat as much as they want, is this bad to do?
Thank you@KDOGG331, sorry for your loss. great job on the necropsy.
Couple of questions...
How fat was he? Was their fat in his abdominal cavity? I ask because I am wondering if maybe the reason for his sudden decline could have been hemorrhagic fatty liver disease? Were those blood clots there when you opened him up?
