    Hi all,
    I have 5 city chickens in my backyard. One of my chicken's rump is covered in diarrhea. The other 4 are nice and clean. So I have decided to cull her from the flock.

    My question is if this bird is good enough for freezer camp or should I throw her in the trash?

    she should be fine for freezer camp ...though i must say, culling her is a bit rash- every once in a while my birds will get either diahaera or pasty butt ... it clears up if you switch out some of the food that they eat.
