    we had our thanksgiving diner last night. we had one of our meat chickens instead of turkey [​IMG] We noticed on the inside of the breast it was green [​IMG] it looked like it was rotten but it didnt smell. Would this have anything to do with aging the meat before freezing? [​IMG]

    it called green muscle disease. its necrotic tissue and you shouldn't eat it. its from the chicken overexerting itself to the point where the muscle actually dies, like freaking out and flapping really bad.
