Nuclear Chickens (moved from LA)

SugarFrosted | Sep 26, 2007 06:42 PM

Does anyone have an explanation for why fresh chicken parts at the supermarket are monster sized? Seriously, they are huge. It's almost hard to believe that they are chickens instead of turkeys. I'm talking about plain, fresh chickens from Foster Farms, Purdue etc. but even at Whole Foods the organic, natural feed chickens are gigantic. I just fried some up in a 12" skillet and the pieces were so big that only 2 of them would fit in the pan! Just wondering if anyone else has noticed and if anyone knows why suddenly all the chickens look like they were raised next to the nuclear power plant. It's scary.
