I wanted to make chicken soup this week. I always use a whole chicken to make it. So, I went to the store with the intention of buying an organic/free-range bird, but they were $13 and $14! Right next to them were the regular chickens priced around $4.00, not per pound, but for the whole chicken. I bought the cheaper bird and now it's in the pot. I am not feeling great about cooking it!
So, how much do you pay for whole organic/free-range chickens?? Was my (Fred Meyer) store off it's rocker for selling so high?? And is it so much better to buy an organic chicken over a non-organic one??
