I have never bought a raw whole chicken, so not very familiar with the pricing for whole chicken. I buy chicken breast once a while, it is between $2.99 to $3.99 a pound!
Rotisserie Chicken at Costcoby Faramarz on Wed Aug 08, 2012 08:49 AM PDT
A 3 lb. rotisserie chicken at Costco goes for $4.99 or 10,000 Toman.
For frugal shoppers in the US, you can buy whole chickens at $0.99/lb, much cheaper than in Iran.

Whole chicken, $1.69 per pound at the local supermarketby Omid Hast on Wed Aug 08, 2012 07:46 AM PDT
I checked my math again.
2,000 Toman = $1
1 kg chicken = 90,000 Toman = $4.50 per kg of whole chicken
1 kg = 2.2 lbs
$4.50/2.2 lbs = $2 per pound of whole chicken
The whole chicken is selling at $1.69 per pound at the local supermarket here in the USA. So over there in Iran, at one-tenth of income, the free market price of chicken is about 20% more than here. That's amazing!

So, the fat chick can make more money! LOL!
$2.00 a pound must be considered exorbitant in Iran, but it is quite cheap here!
I hope the chicken crisis will not worsen, I hate to see people mal-nourished!
Thank you for sharing!
