We had eight surplus roos butchered today and this is our first time through so I'm new to everything- my husband had planned on cutting them up the way he wanted them frozen before he left for work, but called me later to let me know he didn't get around to it. The birds were still packed in ice and very cold, so I'm not worried about that part but all I did was rinse each bird inside and out and put it in a 2 gal. freezer bag in the 'fridge. I noticed some of the birds still had long stringy feathers attached to them (I didn't clean these, we paid some neighbors $1 a bird to do the whole thing). Will the meat be okay sitting in the fridge and then handled again before being frozen? Thanks for any advice!
