Thanks, I wondered about that.
There is bone in that, right?

I thought the thighs might be good too, for our little dude Jack?

Quarters I get from a different store for .89 a pound, when they have them.
They go pretty fast, though.
I still need a big honkin' freezer so I can go here:

If you have a wal mart nearby, thats where we buy our chicken quarters, for 61 cents per pound. I'd definately check it out if I were you.
I rely on the chicken to keep my costs low, because beef is really expensive here.

do u ever get pork ribs? if you look for the "manager's special" packages you can often get a huge rack for 5 bucks.

For some reason none of our Walmarts are 'super'.
FAIL!
.61 a pound is awesome!

yeah, that's at full price, too. They go on sale every now and then for $4.10 per 10 lb bag.
I don't know if it has to be a super wal mart, I think some that aren't labaled as such have a smaller grocery section. I'd call around. And honestly if you have the freezer space, it might be in your benefit to make the drive once a month or so and stock up. You can also try asking a bitcher to order for you i bulk.
Chicken is the one thing I won't pay even close to a dollar for. It's the source that keeps me costs lower. I really try to keep a good stock so I am never forced to pay full price, and buy a ton when things are on sale.

I myself couldn't eat southern grown chicken, so I can't expect my dogs to. It has to be northwest grown.

That makes sense to me. I don't really eat much meat period. Right now I can't afford to buy all organic stuff, it's not in the books for me. I feel good about feeding what I do, its still worlds above kibble, and in the budget, so that's what we feed. And I love it when it goes on sale!!!!

Out of curiosity, how do you know what is grown where, and how much do you pay for "northwest grown" chicken?

Hmm, that's not too bad. I'll actually look into it.
But how do you know where each kind is grown? What do I need to know to determine that? I buy quarters though, is there a better brand or supplier of those?

You should be able to ask at walmart if it doesn't say on the packaging. Foster farms is northwest grown and Draper valley farms is northwest grown.
