hey all, I have a giant cornish x who never got slaughtered on schedule. He's now 20-25 weeks old. He's always been the target of the evil guineas (despite their huge size these cornish x just dont have any fight in them) so when I found him with his head buried in the corner this morning it was no surprise. I noticed that he was beaten up much worse than I've ever seen him allow before. He may not put up a fight but hes good at hiding his head from attack usually. I picked him up, took him out of the coop and placed him on the ground to se how he's doing and he cant stand. Seems like his left leg and wing are not working well. Inspected for cuts, breaks, swelling and there;s nothing. He had a limp on the same side since he was very young (figured he injured himself somehow) but it has gotten steadily better and was almost completely resolved, so it may not be related. The wing and leg have much more of an uncoordinated/partial paralysis look to them than than they do a musculo-skeletal injury kind of look. Anyway, considering: A) He's the target of aggression from many angles B) He is either very injured or very sick C) He's a giant cornish x who was supposed to go to freezer camp anyway ....I decided pretty much as soon as I saw him this morning that its time to put the old boy down. Question is: Should I eat him? If the culprit is Maerks for instance, is there any reason he shouldn't meet his destiny as a stew bird? Thoughts appreciated.
