I know I have seen pictures of this before, though we have never seen it in one of our birds. We had a batch that was quite a bit larger than usual. The largest bird dressed out at 8.5lbs though most were in the 6-7lb range. This evening, I got an email from a customer who described this problem and sent along some pictures. I'm certain it was caused because the bird was so large and the tissue was damaged. My question is, how common is this? We have never let our birds get this big before (and will never again), and now I am worried that all the birds we sold this time around are going to have this damage to the breast. This would be awful considering many people who bought from us this batch, were first-time customers. Is this something that happens with most birds that get that large or is it an anomaly?
