Yesterday I noticed that one of my barred rocks was limping and seemed quite uncomfortable, as I am raising them for food and was thinking about trying the first one soon I decided that I should try her and stop any pain that she might be in.
While I was plucking her I noticed a small lump next to her lower spine. When I gutted her I noticed a fairly large firm fatty area in the area where the ovaries would be, she is just over 4 months and not laying yet.
I am curious if anyone has ever seen anything like this before and if she is still safe to eat.
I am new to this site and I think I have attached a photo, this is the lump cut in half, it was quite large for her size.
