This is strange and I am not really sure where it belongs but I'll try here. Long story short, I ended up with about forty frozen free range chickens from a local guy. They are a couple years old and have been in the deep freeze in ziplock bags. They don't have any freezer burn, but do have a few ice chunks in the bags. I think I want to repackage them better and don't know what to do. I only have a small Foodsaver so that won't work. I could probably look around at resale shops if I need to get a big one. But will they even fit in a regular size vacuum bag? Does that new Reynold's Handi-Vac thing work? I don't want to spend a ton of money to repackage them but the price of this and the bags would be acceptable. Is there any other solution? The guy said they have been eating them and they taste fine for slow cooking and stewing, but I am thawing one to try for myself to be sure. How long is a chicken good for if it's been kept frozen?
