    Here`s the scenario.
    I need some wood pigeons for some game pies and X has twenty waiting for me.

    How long can they be left ungutted before they are debreasted?
    I know temperatures come into the equation but roughly...

    Pigeons "go off" very quickly indeed, so need to be breasted out or frozen ASAP. I always take the breasts out the same evening or they go in the freezer. If you can lay them out in a cool place they will be fine till next day but not much longer.
