    mhmmm i guess but still i pay $13 a kilo at a butcher and get more feathers then say is i brought a kilo from woolies for $6. So its not cheap cheap but at the butchers prices yes it is cheap for us. We enjoy it and like the marinate from the butchers better then say woolies so will continue.

    I dont buy them as DP works fifo so its just me and the kids 1week a fornight. If i did buy them i would pluck them for the kids, but i cant stomach them. Ive even been on medication from the dr because of it, my stomach shrunk and i couldnt eat more than a bite of anything without throwing up.

    thats not good.
    DH is only home for dinner 3 nights a fortnight (does mon-sunday one week and mon to sat the next)he does 13-14hour shifts. So he has to reheat his dinner when he gets home. I dont cook them unless hes home though. Lol

    Whoa!!!! $13 kg??? I'd expect them to be 100% feather free at that price!!! I pay $4 max per kg (un marrinated).

    yep you read right $13 a kilo.
    there free ranmge or organic or something like that (which is the only type of chicken they sell apparently) but their marinade is to die for!!!!
    their unmarinated wings and drumsticks are $9 a kilo.

    But yeah when you compare it to like woolies marinated wings it is expensive but at the butcher it really is pretty much the cheapest meat product they stock lol

    Pretty sure people know where their meat comes from. Yep, I'm a poor city folk who is the first to admit that if I had to kill an animal, I would no doubt be vegetarian.

    Yep. Feathers on chicken wings does gross me out. I got some wicked wings from KFC once & they were so 'feathery' I took them back.

    I used to be a vegetarian, & I still question my decision to eat meat based on these types of things.

    I still believe if you can't catch it&kill it you should be at least questioning yourself as to why you are eatting it.
