    Haha, me too. THE WORST experience I had with breast fillets were bagged (bulk) and were absolutely disgusting, and HUGE. I cook our plant's wings and some get Pterodactyl like, with some birds pushing 53 days.

    Jerod Broussard - The wings I buy from the processor are not packaged. I'd love to see what wings from one of the Tyson 9-10 pound chickens look like.

    Our plant packs party wings but don't really have a scale for them. They are cut off the split breast sections.

    Also, The half chickens my dad was getting from the grocery store in town were getting so big they couldn't use them for fundraisers anymore. They had to switch over to pork chops. Pilgrims has a plant 30 minutes away growing grocery store birds 9-10 weeks. The fast food chickens could fit inside our grocery store chickens.

    Not our Tyson. No Purdue around here. Logistically you don't pay people to put
    smaller pieces in a tray pack. Tyson in Broken Bow, OK is running 9-10 pound birds. The fast food Tyson's grow birds 4 to 4 1/2 weeks. The grocery store plants 7-10 weeks. We are 49-52 days with larger machinery on the way. The plant up the road is 4 weeks fast food and rotisserie.

    Jerod Broussard - If you look at Perdue or Tyson, these are the ones I'm referring to as small at the retail level. Those brands have been getting smaller over the years.

    Small and not a lot of meat. Plus I had crummy shears which made me not want to cut them any way. The BBQ restaurant I worked at had the best wings in terms of quality so I’m always comparing anything to those which is is probably counterproductive since we got them from a meat wholesaler.

    I buy party wings at Costco. Works well for us. They come in those vacuum sealed six packs and they’re separated already so I don’t have to do that. Don’t remember what I paid but I gave up buying them at our grocery store because they were expensive and I found the quality lacking.

    Not so for one company and they are No. 1 in the country. The little 4-5 week old go fast food, the big wings from 7-9 week birds go tray pack to the grocery store. It's basically an industry standard for the pieces sold by weight to be bigger and go to the store to be sold by the pound and the pieces sold by "the piece" to go fast food and be small. If you got small wings in the store they killed younger than normal to fill orders.

    It's very hard to find large wings at the retail level. Most of the more desirable large ones go into the restaurant supply chain, leaving the smaller ones for supermarkets and such.

    I found a meat processor who sells whole wings that after removing the tip, are a good 6 - 7 inches across. Sometimes they are a little smaller but they are always larger than the supermarket.

    No middle man; they generally cost between $2.50 - 3.00 a lb.

    I did some wings from Wild Fork last week. I got the whole wings including the tips. $2.48/lb. The same cut of wing was $3.49/lb at my local grocery store. I just clip off the tip with a kitchen shears. Easy peasy. I like the whole wing for grilling. Easy to flip them around.

    They were very meaty. I cook my wings on my Weber 22"0kettle with a Vortex. Yum. I will buy them from WF again.
