My 17-18 week old easter egger cockerel has decided he's the boss of my young boys and has scratched them up a few times. I don't need a rooster, but I was just keeping him around as a watchdog. After this weekend I think he'd be better off in the freezer. I'd like to make sure I'm doing this right, as this is my first process. Do you vacuum seal it THEN let it rest in the refrigerator for 24 hours before freezing, or wrap it, let it rest in the refrigerator 24 hours THEN vacuum seal it and freeze it. Thanks!
