Was at the grocery store with my wife. A whole chicken was like $8.73. Couldn't believe it, why would anyone sell young rosters cheap if this is the case?
At our store you can buy parts way cheaper than a whole chicken. Bone in breasts are frequently .99/lb. The last time I bought leg quarters they were .49/lb.
Not only will many not kill and dress a chicken, they won't even cut one up.
If you go to the buy sell section here right now you will see many free roosters.
I wouldn't kill and dress a (free) chicken for $8.73 to sell but it's worth doing to me if I'm going to be eating it myself.
