    I was wanting to know what is the best things to freeze whole chickens in? What kind of bags to make sure you get all the air out? Also what about freezing whole quail?

    Awesome. I found a place that sells them pretty cheap. They even sell them for cut pieces. I'm sure those would work for quail. And I'm only raising four turkeys this year. So the thing of buy individual bags is wonderful.
