How much are Americans paying for chicken?
I happened across the highly amusing (and somewhat disgusting) Chicken-in-a-can post this morning, which led me to ask myself just how expensive chickens are in the States. Amazon lists a delicious 6-pack of ciac for $50. That would put the price for a single chicken at $8 something. At my discounter of choice here in Germany you can get a whole fresh chicken for a bit under $4. Who on the face of god's earth would buy the horror that is chicken in a can, when you can get two pristine un-raped chickens for the same price? Is chicken in the States so much more expensive than here?
