Chicken, it's what's for dinner.

At $6.50 a pound for chicken meat, that would be nearly $15 for a plump fryer. I guess Richard Rico might do that, but not I. We have a local store that sells extra large organic eggs for $2.99 for 20 eggs. I am a comparison shopper.

Sky Fest: I've eaten Soul Food chicken and eggs, and I'm happy to pay the premium and just eat less meat -- something doctors and environmental experts say we all should be doing -- to make up the difference in my budget.
There's a big difference between factory organic eggs -- usually laid by chickens in enormous warehouses who never see the sun or real pasture -- and the orange-yolked beauties that these hens lay. And I'm also glad to know I'm supporting a local family, rather than sending my money to some huge out-of-state conglomerate.

I rejoice that your budget allows this. For some folks, the $15 spent on one chicken dinner needs to be used for 5 dinners to feed 6 people each time. I am sure that the chickens that enjoy the pasture will run fast away if the coop catches on fire again.

Eating less meat....that is rediculous!!! next you will tell me that the raising of animals leads to "global warming" which by the way, does not exist.
