    Default How much does chicken cost per lb where you live?

    I got some leg quarters for 69cents/lb today in a 10lb bag. That is about the lowest I have seen in awhile and I think I am going to go get more to freeze. It got me wondering how much other people pay for chicken! So, how much do you pay where you live?

    B/S breasts are on for $2.97/lb. this week, that's the lowest I ever see, usually pay twice that. Legs are on for .97/lb. but I don't buy them or know if that is a good deal.

    One of our stores has b/s chicken breast for $1.67 lb this week. That's pretty good for here. Bone in breast still comes up occasionally for .99 or just over. I don't eat dark meat, so don't pay much attention, but I think .49 lb for leg quarters still comes up from time to time.

    I've been using up freezer stocks, so haven't bought any since December, so I haven't really been watching meat prices very closely for a for several months.

    An average "sale" is 2.49 for chicken drumsticks. The lowest I ever see it is $1.49 for chicken legs.
    Chicken breasts the best deal is $2.99 a pound.

    And before you say anything about the cheaper Canadiam $$ it is on par with $US right now.

    Grrrr

    From various local sale ads:

    frozen quarters .49
    fresh quarters .79
    whole chicken 1.59
    drumsticks or thighs .99

    Chicken breast with or without bone is around $4/lb. I can get boneless on sale at 1.29 once in a while.

    Friends of mine buy turkey quarters for .39/ lb

    Albertson's has been the lowest for months now. Wholes were $.67lb. last week. SL/BL goes as low as $1.78lb. B/I breasts, drums, and thighs, are almost always $.88lb. Wings are ridiculously high priced. I don't even notice the price per pound. I just know that a pkge. is most times over $10. Not happenin" here

    All in all, it's still the best buy for my money. And that's why my freezer's full with it. I've learned to be creative, and so far no complaints I'm just grateful we can still eat everyday! Not everybody has that privelege these days.

    The best price I can get at times is .99 per lb. (parts) But I only buy Draper Valley or Foster Farms......don't even price the others so I am not sure.

    How do you freeze it? Since mine came in a huge back I will have to separate them. I can't see using my foodsaver bags since they are expensive!! I definitely have to freeze most of it though!
