    I just processed a 4 year old rooster that has been fighting with the other roosters and tearing my girls up. Looks like hes been beat up pretty bad to he has puncture on his side and all over his back.[​IMG]

    Yes it was pretty bad Is eatable or no The brown spot above the green spot on his back looks like cooked meat already

    [​IMG]
    That is a huge puncture and is bloody in the meat.,.

    Please Help and dont say anything hateful

    I'd cut out the bad looking parts and eat the good looking parts, but that's just me. If he was fighting, he's bruised up and I would expect that pooled blood wouldn't be good. If you have any doubts, I'd pass on eating it. You could feed it to the chickens.....

    legs and thighs are probably fine. The upper part of the breast looks fine, too. Make sure to cool "well done".
