    The first two photos came from a splash Marans (23-2-2012) and a black Americauna/Maran (9-5-2013). I butchered them yesterday and outside of the lungs everything looked perfectly normal.

    Next two photos came from a silver laced Brahma x partridge Cochin (17-7-2011). She also had no other problems.

    Last week I also butchered two of my Longcrower x CRX (28-8-2013). One had very pale lungs while the other had lungs just like the photos above.
    As you can imagin, I am very concerned. I am also confused that I am not seeing any other problems. I have searched google and the closest I got to my lungs was a photo on Cornell about Avian Influencea and I highly doubt that is what I am dealing with. I have no other symptoms. Thank you

    Thank you. I am going to call cornell (I am in NY) first thing Monday and find out what I should. I was hoping someone else has seen this.
    Again, thank you.
