Have any of you ever found green meat on your chicken? I recently roasted a chicken and there was a tiny spot of green meat. It was very unsettling. I contacted the farmer, who said it was bruising on the chicken.
A quick Google search offered a thread on Chowhound where I learned that most of the people who had this problem purchased their chicken directly from a farmer, or from a free-range chicken source. One of the theories on the Chowhound thread also said it resulted from "excessive flapping" done by free-range chickens. There are other theories that it's gangrene. Either way, it's very unsettling to eat green chicken. Have any of your readers experienced this?.
