I had 12 meat birds that I've been raising. They are now about 6 weeks old. I had one that I butchered yesterday because I assumed that it's legs were bad. I just wanted to make sure that that's what happened because now I have another acting the same way. The ones I'm worried about just sit in one place and don't move. They don't move to eat or drink. If I move them to the water they will drink. I've tried to pick them up and make them move and they just stick their wings out as if not to fall. We haven't been very consistent with our feeding routines. We were going to do the 12 on 12 off but we ended up not doing that. So I would guess that they just can't support their weight anymore. I've never raised meat birds before so I don't know how they act when their legs start to go. Is this what's happening? I guess I'm just concerned and wanted to get your opinion on whether these would be safe to eat.
