Just wondering for storage...............
Great question. No clue.
I'd bet Miss Prissy could answer this one.
Quote:4 to 5 lb.
I don't quite understand. Our vacuum sealer lets you make the bags as long as you want, but it's restricted to 12" wide. We can fit birds up to 5 lbs in those.
thats not good....what do i do if i want to take the birds to ten pounds or so??? whats the best way to store them?
When we raised turkeys, we didn't have bags big enough for them. We wrapped them tightly in plastic wrap, with the legs pushed down against the body, (to eliminate as many air-spaces as we could) like store bought ones. then over-wrapped them in freezer paper, taped securely with freezer tape. They stored very well in the freezer, we didn't see any freezer burn. The last one was probably in the freezer about 8 or 9 months before we ate it.
5lbs is about right.
well, personally. i dont think its right to use your vacuum on your chickens...the hoses get all plugged and...............
I am planning to cut mine up before freezing them. We seldom eat a whole bird so no point in leaving it whole.
You can buy a heat shrink turkey freezer bag that works better than most any of the bag sealers you can buy for home poultry freezing and long term storage.
