How to freeze/preserve a chicken's body

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi - I've had six chickens die in the past month or so, and my local veterinarian told me that I should bring a body or two to the University of Minnesota diagnostic lab. He gave me the phone number for a line that I could ask questions on, they'd tell me how to preserve the body or whatever, but every time I tried it, it was busy. It was supposed to close at a certain time, but it's still busy. So, I'm wondering, how can I preserve a body? Anyone know the correct way?

Just put it in a bag in the refrigerator (Not the freezer). Please read these instructions in this link.
