In the Brooder
- Apr 21, 2009
I just proceesed part of my second batch of cornish rocks yesterday and ran into something odd. I hope someone can help. Everthing was normal (behavoir, size, internal organs looked good, no fluid in belly) until I went to cut off the thighs. There was layer of thick fluid under the skin on both thigh more towards the back on 2 out of 7 birds. The best way I can describe it is it had the same color and consistancy as egg whites. As I pulled more skin back it seemed to cover the entire thigh down to the leg. Thats the only place that it was. The rest of the bird just had the normal connective tissue. The meat under the slime looked and smelled normal.
