We will do our best to get the size that you specify, but please keep in mind that weights can vary from animal to animal.

Thawing a Frozen Bird

To thaw in cold water: make sure the turkey is packaged in a leak proof bag to prevent bacteria from being introduced from the surrounding environment and so the turkey does not absorb any water. Thaw breast side down. Cover with enough cold water to cover your turkey completely. Change the cold water every 30 minutes and if turkey cannot be completely covered, rotate every 30 minutes to keep the turkey chilled. Approximately 30 minutes per pound of turkey is required to thaw. After thawing, cook immediately.

To thaw in the refrigerator: keep the turkey wrapped and place it in a pan. Let it stand in the refrigerator 24 hours for every 4 pounds of turkey. The giblets and the neck may be removed from the bird near the end of the thawing period. If interested in using the giblets and neck for gravy, refrigerate until you are ready to use.
