Gotta thaw out a frozen bird for Oct. 10 cooking. How many days do I allow for thawing in my fridge? (21 lbs)

it will ussually say on the wrapping, but generally, take it out 2 days before and leave it in the fridge.

I just usually thaw overnight in a tub of cold water.

OK, thanks for the help. I am gonna try the two day idea. If still frozen on Sat. morning, in the tub she goes.

I should think dinner and a couple drinks would warm her up. :)

The directions on my turkey read 24 hours for every 4pounds if defrosting in the fridge or 30 minutes per pound if defrosting in cold water...
