I found one of my freedom ranger hens with a prolapsed vent this evening when I returned from work. She seemed very uncomfortable and I had been thinking that I needed to cull her soon anyway because she was getting too big and having difficulty getting around and breathing well. Since I had to end her life, I would hate to not be able to utilize her for meat since that's what she was bred for, but I can't find any information about whether or not it's safe to eat a bird that had a prolapsed vent. Any ideas? Thanks!
