Officials warning of chicken wing shortage ahead of Super Bowl

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Super Bowl is coming up a week from Sunday, and one thing on the mind of many football fans is a whole lot of chicken wings!

Unfortunately, the American Chicken Council is warning that it may be tougher to find wings this year because of record high prices for corn, which makes up two-thirds of a chicken’s diet.

The council expects 12 million fewer wings will be eaten this Super Bowl weekend — just 1% of the 1.2 billion wings Americans are expected to eat that weekend.

Of course, a Super Bowl without chicken wings would be like a Thanksgiving without turkey for some!
