Why is it so?

    Isn't it surreal that the value of the life of an animal is so easily known, is so small, and strange too how it fluctuates over time. When we are subjugated by beings greater than us, will they measure our value too? And what will it be?

        yeah, i don't know, maybe, could be, but then again why not.

        It isn't the value of the animals life you psued, just how much it costs to bring it to harvest with a bit of profit on top. Also aliens don't exist, lay off the weed.

        Not at all, unless you're ignorant of commodities, and markets in general.

      That already happens. Insurance companies and the legal system have established values for limbs, pain and suffering, and death. You can look this up, completely public, it's just not talked about because it's unpleasant. You could also consider your "net worth" and "future earnings"

      Also it's a chicken we lived on a fricked up planet where everything eats each other but if we didn't eat them something else would

      The value of an animal is 0, the value of its body, or more precisely the body without the yucky bits, is what's measured here.

      Human meat would be incredibly expensive if for sale now. We take a ridiculous amount of time to gestate and reach maturity/slaughtering age. Our babies and children spend years needing constant care and attention.

        We could literally kill and slaughter 7 billion humans, leaving a little over 1 billion, and we would be left with an insane amount of resources and knowledge that we could use to rebuild a new world. And lots of meat, as long as we avoid the brains and spinal tissue.

    I just get the Costco chicken which they sell at a loss to get you into the store.

    >Why is it so?
    Probably because fuel is cheaper in the USA, which means chicken feed is cheaper, which means chicken meat costs less to produce.

    It depends on size. But a pastured, veg organic fed Amish whole chicken costs me $6-9. No mechanical plucking damage usually, no water injection, tastes great.

    I almost never buy whole chickens except soup hens (for like 3€) so i'm not that familar with prices but i highly doubt that you pay 10€ for a chicken. It should be 8 at maximum.

      They are allowed to inject water into the rotisserie chicken, and if they don't sell them, they can turn them into chicken salad and other products, whole chickens have to be pitched

      Whole chicken spoils quickly (expensive) unless kept frozen (also expensive). Cooked chicken doesn't, and if you cook them in large batches or in a continuous oven, they're pretty cheap to cook.

    Depends but a whole chicken is about $7USD/€6.50EU

    You start getting free range, anti GMO feed with no hormones/antibiotics and it gets closer to $20/€18.50

    And it’s not subsidized, we just have Mexican labor in our Chinese owned meat packing industry,

    USDA publishes market price averages for meat and produce. You can figure out where all the profit is going, and why prices are the way they are. From November 2023:
    Beef average price per pound:
    Farmer to wholesale: $0.73
    Wholesale to retail: $3.55
    Retail to consumer: whatever you pay at the store.
    Whole chicken per pound:
    Wholesale to retail: $1.60
    Retail to consumer: whatever you pay at the store.
    Eggs wholesale per dozen to retail: 24 cents
    There's a lot of mouths to feed between farmer and your plate. Thanks for supporting all the middlemen 🙂

    Go to the store late in the evening and the price will drop and go 2 for 1. We do it all the time. Take home, debone, and vacuum seal to freeze. It can be as low as $3 for 2 birds
