Average cost for chicken wings rise before Superbowl Sunday

Americans will consume 12.3 million fewer wings

Bad news for chicken wing lovers, right before the tasty food's biggest day of the year.

According to the National Chicken Council, the average cost for a pound of chicken wings will set a record on Superbowl Sunday.

That's because of higher corn feed costs and a boost in demand on restaurant menus.

The council also says Americans will consume 12.3 million fewer wings than last Superbowl Sunday.
