defrosting turkey and storing it in fridge

I will be having a frozen turkey for Christmas dinner this year. I am worried that it will still be 'frozen' in the middle when time to cook it. (I have defrosted one in a large bucket of water before when it had ice inside !). I followed the defrosting instructions on the packaging i.e. x number of hours in the fridge but it was still not defrosted after that time. Maybe fridge is too cold????How long can you keep a defrosted turkey in the fridge/cool garage?
