Default How long can I keep a fresh turkey?

If I buy a 10-12 lb. turkey today, will it be okay for Thanksgiving? Almost a week.

It should be if they are selling fresh turkey's now. Is there an expiration date on the wrapper? I pick mine up the 22nd - fresh turkey from a local store.

the stock answer is
- if it's wrapped - it's okay thru the sell by date on the label
- unwrapped nekkid in the fridge: 2-3 days.
