Shelf life of raw chicken

tastesgoodwhatisit | Oct 1, 2010 11:49 PM

Does anyone know how long you can keep raw chicken in the fridge after slaughtering?

I get really good chicken at the local traditional market, and I know it's really fresh (as in killed within a few hours of me buying it). But I have no idea how long it keeps - the stuff you buy in the grocery store comes with a best before date, but I don't know how long it has spent in shipping and processing.

And what is the corresponding time for the offal - gizzards, liver, hearts and so on?
