If its just in the fridge it can take quite a while, but if you submerge it in water and then put it in the fridge it will thaw much more quickly. I've thawed a 22 lb turkey which was frozen solid in 3-days using this method. The cold water will thaw things much faster than even setting it out on the counter at room temperature.
