It does look rather bruised, something that happens during the poultry processing. Usually bruised poultry is reserved for industrial purposes (canned soup, etc.) and does not make it to the retail grocery stores.

I think you would be perfectly in your right to bring back the bird to the store where you got it from an ask for an exchange or refund.
