I am planning on renting a chicken plucker in eight weeks in order to dress out a bunch of quail and Cornish Rock. To lower the costs, I'm renting it with two other people, so we will all be dressing out birds on the same day. With that in mind, I have five geese who like me about as much as I like them. I would really like them gone - the sooner the better - and my freezer seems like a perfect place for them. Is it possible to start processing them, then put them in the freezer for a few weeks before thawing them out and throwing them in the chicken plucker? I was thinking about bleeding and cleaning them, but leaving the majority of the feathers on. Then on plucker-day, get them out, thaw them, and throw them in to get the rest of those meddlesome feathers off. Will that work? Am I just stuck feeding these guys for another eight weeks?
