is this ok to eat?

i found a whole chicken in the bottom of my deep freeze. the date on it is feb 06... it still looks good. color is just like they are in the store. not grey looking at all.

do you think it's ok to eat? i have it in the fridge to thaw out and of course i'll know for sure tomorrow when i open it if it still smells fine or not.

but do you think i should have something else planned for supper tomorrow instead of this chicken? should i go ahead and cook it or throw it out now?
thanks!

I did it before and Im still alive , no really the turkey was tdf I found it quite odd because I thought it would be dry from the freezer. There are websites online that will tell you how long you should freeze meat.

That site is neat! The OP said she had a whole chicken, and not chicken parts, so what they say is only one to two months....

Personally, I'd toss it. I'd rather spend the money to buy a new chicken, than possibly get sick from it.

The deep freezer buys you a lot more time than a regular freezer. Glad it didn't go to waste.
