Chicago Butcher - Need large amount of chicken thighs

DGalt | Apr 22, 2012 10:04 AM

I'm making my own cat food, and I need to buy 50 or 60lbs of chicken thighs (preferably thighs, not leg quarters) at a time. Checking prices at the local stores (mainly dominick's) I can get thighs for around $1.50/lb, which isn't terrible, but I'd probably have to go to several different stores or make some arrangement with a single store since they generally don't put out that many packages at a time.

What I'd like to find, though, is a butcher that can fill this order (would be a monthly order) since 1) it'd be more convenient and 2) I'm hoping to find a price cheaper than I can get at the local grocery store (since everything there is pre-packaged, etc.)

Anyone have any suggestions about where in Chicago I might be able to find a butcher that would be able to fill this?
