Hi everyone, I haven't seen a lot of info on this. So, after I remove the body, flesh, wash and take measurements I order everything. In that week span of waiting for everything to arrive, can the bird sit in the fridge or freezer without going bad? Will the bird start to rot if left in the fridge too long? I'd hate to order beforehand and get the wrong sizes. Can I take measurements of the bird whole and still be accurate? This is for my first pheasant. Also, I've read that many people do/don't wash pheasants? It wouldn't have the fat like a goose since its not a waterfowl?
