Summer is coming quickly, but the backyard barbecue is in jeopardy!  America is in the grips of a chicken wing shortage.

As more people stayed home and cooked, or ordered takeout, the increased demand for chicken wings has skyrocketed over the past pandemic-ridden year.

Plus, Covid-19 virus outbreaks at several chicken slaughterhouses, left a worker shortage too.

The chicken wing shortage is affecting restaurants and grocery stores, forcing some retailers to impose quantity limits on how much chicken one customer can buy.
