    My mother just slautered a BBB hen because her heath was poor. Afterwards, my mother found the hen had blackhead. Can we still eat this hen?

    I would not recommend eating a sick bird.

    I would use it as bait to catch foxes and predators.

    Decision is yours though.

    I would have to agree with Alexander. I wouldn't eat a sick bird.
