    I processed a cockerel this morning and one testicle was rather greenish :sick
    I guess I know why he was getting picked on. Meat and other guts look fine.

    Nice! Now if we can figure out what causes this.
    I wonder if @casportpony knows.

    Weird. Never have seen this before.

    Now if they were blue, maybe we could come up with some theories. ;)
