LOTS of older frozen chickens?

My sister let a whole lot of her hand-raised chickens sit in the freezer for nearly two years, and she was getting ready to toss them. Given that I'm POOR, and know that freezer-burn does not spell DOOM, and that she was unwilling to learn from me, my freezer runneth over with whole, frozen chickens... literally. I could feed them to the dog, thus saving much dinero, but I feel that these 30-40 chickens (or at least some of them) have a higher calling. Nothing being off-limits, and the freezer-burn not being (at least visibly) all THAT bad... what would you do with this much free food? How about the few locally-cured hams and pork shoulders mixed in? I can make lots of stocks and tacos, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.
