Turkey prices push charities to chicken

The price of turkeys increased enough for Thanksgiving this year that some churches and charities that feed the needy for the holiday are busy adjusting their menus.

The American Farm Bureau reports that the price of an average turkey, about 16 pounds, is $19.09 this year, or about $1.19 per pound. That is a 9 cent per-pound increase, or a total of about $1.44 per turkey, from Thanksgiving in 2007.
