Can’t process, can I “extinguish” myself and freeze?

    I need to let my 12 week old Cornish x too and hen go. He can’t walk and she is getting there (I accidentally got meat chicks in my mix.) trouble is I nursed them back to health first week and now I’m attached. I think I can “extinguish” them but no way I can process myself, I’m too close. Can I put them on ice for someone else to do it? Say the next day? What’s the word on that? Or should I just take then to who wants to process and eat them and let them do it?

    From a purely utilarian standpoint, it is much easier to process a fresh carcass than a chilled one. Let someone else do it all.
