    So I saved a chick that had passed away, so I could get a necropsy done on it. Its about 3 days dead now and I was wondering if its to late? I was going to call A&M today but they had closed.
    It hasn't been kept frozen also.

    You might call them first thing in the morning, but it may be too long by the time the body is being shipped. The fresher the body, the better. Up to 3 days is probably okay, but you might be better off driving the body to a nearby poultry lab rather than shipping.
