Default Chicken turned green

We bought a fresh free range chicken from our usual butcher. We roasted it
and carved enough for our meal. We later carved the rest and found that meat
from the shoulder area was green. The bone cavity under that part was also
green, it did not smell any different. We put the carcass and the green meat
in a box in the fridge until we could show it to the butcher. His
explanation was "Air". He said that if air gets into the area between the
bone and the meat that it can turn green. Has anyone come across this
phenomena.

Sounds unlikely to me. Never heard that the place "between the bone
and the meat" had any special properties. I hope he refunded your
money. You say you found this when carving the rest after having your
meal. How much later? -aem

Somebody here asked a v. similar question a year or so ago. So, yes,
someone somewhere has had a similar experience, though from memory it
was unusual when last asked about. If you google on past messages you
might find something.

I see that the victim of that incident e-mailed Purdue. There seems to be a
trend away from picking up the telephone these days, but that's what he
should have done.

We found it about an hour later. We fed the green bits and the carcase to a
flock of sea gulls that were sitting on a grassy area. Strange when I passed
the place this week they took to the air and followed us swooping around.
Were they complaining or askin' for more.

Yes, that sounds like our chicken. I had been difficult to persuade my wife
to buy chicken:-) now she is sticking to rabbit.

If my stupid markets would carry rabbit, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
They used to; don't know what happened to it. -aem

I remember finding supermarket rabbit in Wegman's when I lived in the
Finger Lakes Region. They carried it in the frozen foods, Kosher foods
section. I found it in Brockport, Greece, Rochester and Brighton
Weggie's stores. No fresh rabbits to be found anywhere, however.

Couldn't say if Wegman's in that area still carries it or not.

Not me! I find it stringy. I even raised rabbits as a test
of our skills if "something" drastic ever happened and we
had to provide our own food source. That may have
contributed to my lack of desire to eat them

I used to be able to find Pell-Freeze (I think that's the brand) frozen cut
up rabbit. Haven't seen it in years. I guess a lot of people can't stomach
the idea but it really is delicious (and yes, it taste like - or better
than - chicken!)

Maybe green muscle disease?

This shows an uncooked chicken.
