But if they are cooked properly wouldn't you get rid of any infection?

Freezing them won't kill the bugs. All it does is slow down the process of replication so food lasts longer. That's why freezers have star ratings and why the max length food can be kept is 12 months. Most bacteria and viruses can survive low temperatures.

 

Cooking the birds should kill most bugs but personally I wouldn't risk eating feral birds. If you don't get the temperature right or if there's something that's temperature resistant, then you could be facing some dire illness. Also cooking only kills bugs, it can't destroy toxins and there's no guessing what may be accumulated in the bird as it could have eaten anything.

 

Best thing to do with ferals is burn them. 2nd best is bury them.

 

Above all shoot them! The less ferals there are, the more food there is for the Woody's and the less diseased birds in the country.
