Default did I buy too early?

I bought a Honeysuckle brand 13 pounder today. Fresh, not frozen.
Paid a buck per lb.
But now I'm thinking, did I buy too early? Is it ok to leave it in
the refrigerator for 6 days? Usually I buy frozen, leave in the
refrig freezer and change to the refrig for three days, or less if
it's a smaller one.
So, six days ok? Or should I put in freezer for three days and then
to refrig for 3 more?
Going to smoke in K7 using cherry wood only.

Use the date on the burd's packaging as a guideline. If it looks good,
keep it sealed and store it properly.
If it's close to its 'best by' date, give it the freeze ho, then thaw
as recommended.

The dates on the packaging are important. Is there a use-by
or sell-by date? Is it vac-packed?

The conventional advise for poultry holding times is 1-2 days
refridgerated. This is *extremely* conservative though, and it
really refers to the maximum holding time beyond the sell-by
date.
