Pre-paid orders for 100 meat birds (cornish X) fell into my lap. I will raise and process them in early spring. I usually do my own birds in lots of 25. I process my own birds at about 7 weeks. The reason being is I can get them into the 11" food saver bag and freeze them whole. For this order though, I will let them go 8 weeks to insure a quality size bird and repeat happy customers. My concern is that they may not fit in the food saver bag. The people stated they would like their birds packaged whole. Any thoughts to help out with this? What are some methods I can use to package whole birds incase they don't fit in the food saver type bag?
