If they're gonna be in the freezer awhile, I've had good luck with wrapping a wet papertowel around their feet to keep away the freezer burn demons. Ziploc 'em, and squeeze out as much air as possible :thumbsup:
I completed a bird not long ago that had been in the freezer for 5 years, just in a plastic ziplock. The feet were nuked, and the face/head was dry, but I was able to rehydrate that.
