My first attempt at meat chickens produced some huge chickens (probably too big) at 8 weeks. while their are many things I learned and tons that I would do different, This growth in the center of one of my chickens is baffling me. It looks like an artichoke heart and it is on both sides of the breast bone. I threw out the whole chicken out of fear for what this disgusting growth could be but any knowledgeable feedback would be appreciated.
