I was going to roast a chicken rotisserie style in my oven but when I opened it to clean the fatty sides of the back end were grey.  I guess its the "vent" end.  It was grey on both side and rather large areas I didn't know if it would be ok to cook and eat or not so the bird had flown the coop so to speak.  Would it have been ok to prepare or is it better to be safe rather than sorry.

well, as long as it is well cooked and done through and through it would probably be safe but maybe not taste good?   Heck if I know.  I know that you can eat spoiled meat if you cook the heck out of it and it most likely would not smell or taste good.  But who the heck wants to unless you are starving.

You were probably wise to chuck it, altough I would not hesitate to cut away anything that looked suspect and cook the rest.  I'd be likely to write it off to freezer burn.  But I'm sorta cheap that way...
