Chicken Wing Shortage?!
Say it isn’t so.
With one of the biggest chicken wing eating weekends coming up, could there be a shortage of wings?
You wouldn’t think it’s possible, but we American’s eat 1.23 billion chicken wings the weekend of the big game!
The National Chicken Council (yes there is such a thing) released a report that said the demand for wings this year is at “an all-time high” due to decreased wing production caused by the high cost of corn and feed prices. Wings are currently the highest priced portion of a chicken and cost $2.11 a pound, up 12 percent from last year.
Next to Thanksgiving, the biggest eating day of the year is “big game weekend”
