I was slaughtering a couple of turkeys the other day and my neighbour had a young rooster she wanted me to slaughter for her. While I was plucking the rooster I noticed tiny bugs crawling around near the vent area and after some online research think they must have been chicken lice. Just wondering if the bird will still be okay to eat. It was really gross to see them crawling around but I don't want to waste the poor bird if I don't have to. Luckily, my turkeys were free of parasites. Hooray!
