Is it safe to cook a whole chicken from frozen? If yes, than how long do I keep it in the slow cooker for? 

Thanks Ladies

Yes. I do it all the time. Honestly, I put it in the crock pot in the morning and check it about six hours later-you can check it sooner so it doesnt dry out. I dont even know how long it takes to actually cook because I ignore it once it's in there. :-) Use a meat thermometer to be sure it's finished.

 I know when I put a whole chicken (non frozen) into mine I cook it for about 8 hours.. It's usually a 5lbs chicken..

I'm not sure about frozen.. Probably close to the same.

the gizzards stuffed in the birds butt might be a problem...just run chicken in cold water

 It is not recommended.  The chicken spends way too much time in the danger zone in regards to temperature..

I cook them frozen. I usually put it in the crockpot on low overnight. Probably on low for 8-10 hours. The other day I did it on high for 6 hours and it was done-a little drier than usually though.
