    So I don't know if this is the best place to ask this, but here it goes. My dog killed a chicken 2 days ago but I think she just broke its neck because there was no blood. It has been refrigerated ever since. Is it still safe to pluck and eat?

    No its not safe to eat. The bacteria in the guts will have made it into the rest of the carcass by now.
