Hey, I was trying to avoid the "flirting with death" methods. In fact, I've only once purchaced a fresh turkey. My mom bought two frozen birds a year, sometimes overseas (remember, I'm a military brat) and no one ever got sick on one, period, even when the local military hospitals were filled beyond capacity with GIs who ate at the chow halls. I guess in this day and age we're all getting a little paranoid about food safety. My day old turkey can still break rocks. Thanks for all your help!

I picked up a 14 lb turkey on Saturday, and had the store saw it in half. I thawed one half in my refrigerator until today (3 days). I was able to remove the breast and cut up the rest to go in the slow cooker, but it was not thawed.
