Chicken defrosted few days ago?

I got drumsticks out freezer few days ago and they've been in fridge since. Are they OK to eat? They are still packaged and hadn't been opened at all. I know they say within 24 hours but curious if this is true.

    Yes, they should be ok to eat. The only time they wouldn’t be ok to eat is if they were left outside the fridge.

    Some chicken is sold cryo-vac theses days. Thawed they are still good up to 4 days. For chicken that is not, No more than 3 days or so, just sniff it before cooking and cook it to 165 degrees.

    Three days or less if they look and smell ok is fine. Cook thoroughly. But it's chicken, you were gonna do that anyway, right?
