Super Bowl Parties Face Chicken Wing Shortage

Posted: Updated:

  Get ready to pay more for chicken wings for your Super Bowl watch party.

  Americans are expected eat 1.2 billion wings on Super Bowl Sunday.

  But this year there will be 12 million fewer wings than last year.

  The decline is due to a rise in corn and animal feed prices because of the drought.

  The shrinking supply means the price for wings will be the highest ever..  at about $2.11 per pound.

  That's up 12% from last year.
