I had 8 week old cornish x processed by an Amish place, shrink wrapped whole. I let them season in the refrigerator for 36 hours before placing them in the freezer. Once frozen I noticed they all had turned a bit red in color. Oddly, the same thing did not happen to a few I put in a different freezer. Should I be concerned by the color change. The one we ate fresh was excellent.

I doubt it's the birds themselves that turned reddish, it looks like there might be some excess blood in the bags.
