Small flockers launches retail price checks

Small Flock Poultry Farmers is launching a national survey of retail prices for chicken.

To ensure accuracy and consistency, Glenn Black of Providence Bay, Ont., has posted a survey form on the small flockers’ website, .

In his invitation, Black writes:

“All Canadian consumers are encouraged to help collect these data.  This data will enable everybody to have instant information for Canadian consumers on the current pricing of chicken in Canadian retail stores.

“What GasBuddy is for retail gasoline prices, this database will be for retail chicken prices.

“Our primary interest is for raw, fresh whole chickens (ie. not cooked, not frozen). 

“Please concentrate your data collection efforts on raw, fresh, whole chicken, first and foremost, but we can accept pricing data on all cuts and types of chicken.”
