For several years I added new peeps and now I have too many and have started killing off some of the older ones for the table. My question is, how do I know what is normal and when should I be concerned? For example, on one bird, the fat had turned from yellow to orange and hard. Another bird had a gouge in the meat not caused by butchering; should I assume a hawk had tried to eat it or is there a disease that does that? Is there anywhere with pictures of skinned birds to know what to look out for? All acted healthy before butchering, except no longer laying.
