strange autopsy, yellow belly, pale liver
Should I be concerned about my free ranging flock? We slaughtered 3 young outwardly healthy roosters this morning. 2 seemed normal, one had very thin skin on its breast and a very yellow color. Upon evisceration it drained alot of yellow liquid from under the skin and perhaps from the body cavity. The liver was very pale and I think enlarged with darker capillary like spots. We elected not to eat the bird and disposed of it in the garbage. Could this be caused by coccidiosis or parasites?
