Well it's been a couple of days, and the chicken needed fresh salt solution. We opened him up, wearing rubber gloves this time because who knows what else is in there besides the salt, and put him on a cookie sheet. Yummy. We rubbed off his wet salt as best we could, and then dusted and stuffed him with new, dry stuff. Then back in the bags! (new bags) He really didn't smell bad at all, I think it's more a psychological effect that makes you feel so squeamish. Just imagine doing this to a whole human body! Yikes!
