Raw fowl is not muktza according to Shulchan Aruch (308:31-32, Mishna B'rura :125), as some eat it. Although we do not rely on this for four-legged-animal meat (Mishna B'rura :125, quoting the Magen Avraham), we do in a situation of d'chak (Mishna B'rura :125). Now, Sh'miras Shabas K'hilchasah (11 footnote 20) quotes R' S.Z. Auerbach as saying that since nowadays no one eats raw meat, we cannot rely this. (Does he mean for land-animal meat only? Or even for fowl? I don't know.) Do "we" hold of R' Auerbach? (It seems telling that SSK does not seem to use his ruling in the main text: only in a footnote.) As always CYLOR. (The above synopses are my own; don't rely on them!)

most of the kulos are indeed in the footnotes, in the Hebrew text, of Shmiras Shabbos Kehilchasah. –  josh waxman Feb 9 '11 at 17:37
@joshwaxman Yes, but in this case he seems to be bringing a Ḥumrah in the footnote. What does it all mean??? –  Seth J Dec 12 '11 at 16:08
