What the cluck? Chicken supplies run lowThe Washington Post 04/30/2021
America is running low on its supply of chickens. The popularity of fried chickens sandwiches sold by fast food chains has created a significant increase in demand and processors have had difficulty finding the number of workers needed to fill the need. Chicken, which was already the most popular meat in the U.S. before the pandemic, has only seen sales increase since, with more Americans picking up sandwiches from local fast food locations or having the items delivered to their homes.
