No wing shortage here heading to Super Bowl weekend

— Americans will consume an estimated 1.23 billion wings on Super Bowl weekend, though the National Chicken Council said last week that number could be down about 1 percent from last year.

The group said a severe drought last summer affected corn production, which in turn affected chicken production.
