Some folks have sent their dead chickens to this lab where they will study their cause of death. You can even call them and chat with an avian specialist to get more info. Ship them in an ice chest packed with ice using next day delivery. Do
not freeze the body. Just refrigerate them until you ship. Check shipping rates verses gas to drive to the lab.
