Chicken feet are worthless in the US. They're a popular snack in China

The export/import of chicken feet from the US to China is worth hundreds of millions of dollars a year and the price will only go up.

It's now become an issue of disputes to be settled by the World Trade Organization

I apologize for the fact that you have to go through a sign-up wall to read the story. It's free, though

Yup, was going to say the same thing. One of the craziest things the dude they were interviewing said was that most chicken processing companies could not survive if they didn't have a huge market for chicken feet.

They can have Chickenfoot. They can also have all of the Sammy Hagar-era Van Halen albums.
