I haven't seen the price increase here, yet. Drumsticks last week were $1.29/pound in five pound packs. Whole chickens still 77-cents. I don't know if it makes any difference, but thigh meat has long been heavily consumed here, because it's generally the choice for fajitas, and a good bit of local chicken goes to fajitas.

But I suppose now the producers will be jogging the chickens around the track and flinging them to make them fly to darken the breast meat.

I'm sorry, but I fail to see the humor in this clip. I think it borders on cruelty. And it goes to show just how dumb some chickens or roosters can be. It kept coming back for more.

I'm not from the Southern US, so to me those are whole barbecued chickens. We used to have that most Sundays in summer, when I was a kid.

I certainly don't want the bigger breast. I know somethings been done to them to make them big. It reminds me of time I was purchasing chicken breast and all of them were huge. I called the butcher up and asked him did they have some smaller, average sized breast. He actually looked at me like I had two heads, lol. I joking said I know what yall do to those breast.......

The larger ones simply come from an older bird. The birds that are sold today en mass are at the most 3 month old. If you get a roaster it might be 6-8 month old, if you get a stewing hen it is probably about a year or so. Not sure what they do the older egg laying birds when they are done.
