Roast chicken offers frugal answer to shortage-driven turkey prices


Talking turkey this Thanksgiving 2022 won’t come easy.

You may have noticed that many grocery prices haven’t backed down in the same way that some other costs for, say, gasoline have. The Turkey Day bird, certainly a major grocery item this time of year, is pricey, and will stay that way.

It’s a nasty combination of a severe bout of avian flu across the U.S., the inflation of feed grain (especially corn and soybean) prices and, finally, a decline in what’s known as “live-weight” turkey production. It all just spells out to say, “Thanksgiving dinner turkeys will cost a lot this year.”
