Chickens – My Sunday Photo – 9/09/18

Hello everyone, this weeks photo post is not something I would normally take a picture of but let me explain the story behind it.

The other week on Twitter I saw. someone sharing tips on saving money on food shopping. One rather rude man sent a reply to the tweet suggesting the lady was deluded if she thought she could  get a weeks shopping for under £40 as a chicken alone cost £8.

Now the good folk of Twitter (myself included) took it upon themselves to educate this foolish man on the average cost of a chicken. I thought no more about the incident until Mr A and myself were in Chepstow earlier today and came across this!!!

A fresh chicken im a shop window. A price tag sticking out of the chicken with the words 'this joint £15.71

Unless I have read it wrong they are asking almost SIXTEEN POUNDS for a chicken. I know its was a free range chicken, but seriously, I have no words.. ………….

(apart from the ones I’ve already written)

Would you pay £16 for a free range chicken?

    Way too expensive … I have had free range chickens much cheaper than that. Wouldn’t mind paying a little more, but not way more. #MixitUp

    Way to pricey for me, I’d expect to pay that much for lamb or beef, but I Chicken no.

    Seems like an insane price, but maybe it was an organic one as well. The angle makes it look more turkey sized than chicken. We only ever buy chicken crowns because we only eat the breast meat here

    Free range from a butcher is so much better than supermarket birds, the taste is very different. The price is high and no I wouldn’t pay it but more the fact because my family will not eat chicken if it looks like a chicken lol

    That’s ridiculous. It would have to taste absolutely amazing to be worth that much! #mysundayphoto

    It’s a big chicken, judging by the label. I guess someone will be willing to pay that price. #MySundayPhoto

    No, no I would not. I hesitate when it gets around $9 bucks (about £7) which is the cheapest I’ve seen lately. I actually just got a game hen for about $3 bucks (£2.32).
    This looks bigger than 2.5 pounds but you never know what you’re going to get with chicken and I’ve gotten burned many times laboring over what turned out to be very little meat.

      £7 is what I would expect to pay for a free range chicken, but I must confess I dont buy free range a smy budget doesnt stretch to that

    It’s a tough one. We’ve tried free-range before and there is definitely a difference in terms of taste and quality. But is it worth double the price of a standard chicken? I’m much less sure about that – we tend to opt for the cheaper ones.

      Ive eaten free range chicken that were former egg laying chickens (my mums chickens) but that is a very different taste to chickens that are bred to be eaten.

    We may have to start fattening ours up to sell at that price!
