In fact, does he already own the chickenboy.com site?

just added one to my shopping. ta

They'd run out when I got my shopping delivered on Tuesday so I got a small one as a replacement which cost twice as much!

thats typical!!! they only had a gew left this morning at 11.00

i know this is seems a good deal, half price !! woop woop but what abot allthe suppliers tesco screw over as they will deamnd that they get the chickens at ahlf price and that will ost certainly be under the price of production for the farmers.

sorry for the rant but i felt it had to be said.

tesco is evil :P

I wonder how they can raise a chicken, kill it, pack it + pay for transport + a bit of profit for poor little tesco for £1.65.
Well, actually, I know how and I wouldn't want to eat it.:-(

I'm no animal actavist vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, but I think people should avoid cheap meat for reasons like this:

Exactly!

I'd rather know an animal has had some form of life, Roaming around free etc

We buy free range (although some of the labels can be a con as the chickens still get fed crap food.)

they can run loss leading promotions like these on really popular stuff (everyone likes chicken except veggies !) and it brings loads more people into the shop. there's never much profit in chickens anyway, its all about flogging more volumes of stuff isnt it ! id be happy to eat it, its just a chicken

It;s your choice. They still get slaughtered though ---
btw, in the US, chicken breast fillet - with no skin and sliced nicley can be bought as low as £ 1per pounds.

So.. there is still a room for these british farmers to be more productive and cut the price of chicken !

And a kilo is... Oh, 2lb and a bit. Therefore the breasts probably cost about 50p of that 97p. But I agree, farmers could be more productive. Build bigger sheds and force feed the ******s more to produce bigger chickens.

Ain't it though.....

It's called exercising the lowest form of wit, ie sarcasm:giggle:

Chicken - a good source of protein. Actually no, it should be, but due to the intensive farming methods where chickens are crammed into a large warehouse with no room to move, you're actually getting and eating chicken which has more fat in it than protein. Think the report said the chicken has either about 10 times more fat, or 10 times less protein!! I bet this Tesco chicken is hardly any healthier than eating pure saturated fat!!
