  • thats part of the tail.

    check up by the neck/breast flap of skin - they should be in there.

    or there might not be any at all.

  • if not up the rear then normally down the neck in a bag, sometimes they are in the bag attached to the neck, giblets are not very big. also check the package does it mention anything about the giblets being in it? sometimes they take them out.

  • I'd say check all around it too, and look inside your turkey, feel in there too...heck take a flash light and look in!

    Some times they do place them under the legs...etc.

    I'm not one on giblet gravy, never could make the best from scratch like that!

    Giblets are liver colored if I recall right. Won't be checking my bird....TINA the TURKEY til tomorrow! LOL

    Hope you found them!

  • Maybe if you really need some you can get to the grocery store and pick up some frozen giblets or refridgerated kind. I know stores do sell them. OR ask the butcher for any?

  • ok thanks for the ,"part of the tail explanation"....but not under flap of skin....can't find an flap of skin....sorry guys. I feel so dumb here, ughhhhhh!! But the directions says take out TWO bags, i can't find the second. This doesn't make any sense to me, why would they hide it. Whats the point of that.....

  • I don't acutally want the giblets, i'll be making gravey from the turkey juices. I just want them out of the turkey so i can stuff it. LOL!
    I want to stuff in tonight so in the morning i can just pop it in and lay down for a bit b4 everyne gets up.

  • is the inside frozen even a little bit still? sometimes the bags will stick to the insides.silly question but it wasnt free floating in the wrapper was it? and its not in a smaller bag inside the bag with the neck? (sorry trying to think of every place it could possibly be)
