How long can u keep rodents in the freezer? I'd guess pretty much infinite but I'm no expert.

If you squeeze all the air out of the bags then the chances of freezer burn is reduced. A shrink wrapper is a good idea.

Make sure you do not freeze them in batches but each one must be frozen solid within hours or else they could go off which you will only know when they are defrosted.

Dont keep them frozen for more than a few months. I would say 1 to 2 months in a freezer compartment of a fridge and 2 to 4 months on a big dedicated freezer would be maximum to ensure a safe product.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
