Due to rising costs of corn and other feed, chicken wing production is down, right ahead of the Super Bowl.
Americans are serious about their chicken wings. Second only to Thanksgiving, Super Bowl weekend is the biggest eating day of the year, and chicken wings are the most popular dish. To give you a picture of just how many wings fan will chow down on, The National Chicken Council says if those 1.23 billion chicken wing segments were laid end to end, they would stretch between the San Francisco 49ers Candlestick Park and the Baltimore Ravens M&T Bank Stadium 27 times.
According to The Google, the distance between Baltimore and San Francisco is 2,817.3 miles. 27 times that is 76,067.1 miles. 76,067 miles is about one-third the distance to the moon!
That is a lot of chicken.
