Totally fine. Get it in the pot before Tuesday.

Haven't done mine either, but it's in a really cold fridge in our garage, so I think it'll be fine until Tuesday. Have to come up with a different soup this year....

You could always freeze it, of course. Just break it down into a lot of medium sized pieces, wrap in a bit of freezer paper and put them in a zip-style plastic bag. Then cook them down when it's convenient. ;o)

Agree with all of the previous answers (assuming that the turkey was cooked and the carcass refrigerated).

Ditto pierino. I'm not a scientist by any stretch, but I do think that a long slow bubble, or even a few minutes of boiling will kill germs pretty effectively.
