We have some meat birds that we plan to butcher this week end. Here's the thing, two of them are seeming to have trouble walking. Now, I know they are prone to leg problems because of their size, but these birds feed was carefully monitored to ensure that wouldn't happen til we got to a point were we could do the butchering. They are not overly big at all. In fact, while they do have large breast meat, they are still the two smallest birds. I'm honestly thinking that since they are larger than our other birds(the non-broilers) and like to roost on top of the chick pen, they made their not so graceful jump to the ground the other morning and hurt themselves. I'm mostly thinking this because it happened all of a sudden. They were fine one day then hobbling around the next. My question is, would they still be safe to eat? (because we womt eat a sick chicken) Is it more likely an injury and they are still safe to eat or should I not risk them being sick and just cut my losses and just cull them? Should I wait it out for those two and see if they get better and then butcher? Opinions???
