OK friends--I NEED your help now....I had to butcher another meatie today and I found strange things and I really want some opinions on this! Here are the pics I took. FIrst I thought it was odd that the wing had a very swollen top part (I dont have a pic of this) I get the bird all plucked up and I cut open the Top part of the wing where it is all swollen...it appears that there is an enclosed cyst there (smelly, cheesy stuff) Then I see a bit of bone sticking out near the lower joint...maybe an injury? OK--I get past that and I draw the bird out. Here is a pic of the liver with a pen for comparison: Unfortunately I had to take the pics with my phone, send them to my son who then sent them to my computer; the quality is not great! What is the deal with this great big liver? It is probably DOUBLE the size of the one from yesterday! I should have weighed it... Now is a really odd thing I found in the same bird. This is a picture of the stuff I pulled out. I decided to cut the bird into pieces (glad I did cause then I found this) because I was not going to consume that wing with the cyst in it. This is the split breast. Right down along the keel bone I saw something odd. There was some white material that was kind of stringy. I reminded me of cooked chicken but real dry. Places had a bit of a greenish tinge. On the left you can see the hole I got it out of. Then I sliced along the keel bone on the right side and got a whole bunch out of that side! It didnt have any smell at all and felt kind of spongy. The only thing I can liken it to is the weird feathery "lung things" in a lobster. (weird I know) It was INSIDE the bird not under the skin like a breast blister would have been. OK--does anyone have any ideas on this? Three things in one bird that I have never seen before...and I have butchered many birds...please advise if I should even eat this bird? Thanks a bunch!!!!
