I dispatched a young OE rooster today, earlier than planned but he had injured himself pretty significantly. Short story he was trapped in a small space for anywhere up to 14 hours (that's been fixed) and in his struggles created some open wounds and covered himself in feces. Due to the combination of open skin and poop I decided to be safe and dispatch but not process. But I'm wondering if there would have been a safe way to salvage the meat? I guess I could have processed, cooked and fed back to the chickens...
