Meats do not last long in the refrigerator. Only about 3 to 4 days if it is raw. Then 1 to 2 days longer if cooked and placed in an airtight container. You should always cover meats when stored in the fridge.

How long can a whole unfrozen turkey be refrigerated?

After thawing, you have only about two days to cook it, then all the bacteria that have been asleep while it was frozen will make it into something you very much DON'T want to eat. If this is a "fresh" (unfrozen) turkey you have just purchased from the supermarket, it should have a due date on it somewhere. Much like chicken, raw turkey that has never been frozen will last in your fridge for about four or five days.
