Where to buy wings

Simple enough question, but I have not been able to locate somewhere that sells a fair amount of wings. I have seen little packages (dozen) at the grocery store, but I was looking for a large package (3 dozen). COSTCO doesn't have them as far as I could see. Where does everyone get their wings?

    I usually buy mine at Kroger as they seem to be cheaper than Publix.

    They usually come in baker's dozen packs.

    Sams if you have one nearby. My guess is that there are about 50 wings in the bag.

    Otherwise, not sure. :)

    Look in the freezer section usually will find 3-5 lb IQF wings in bags.
    Where you are at in the world may add good answers. Here in Indy Meijer is a good place and they will even offer BYGO free sales and I stock up.

    I must be blind. I'm in Denver, and haven't seen large quantities. I'll try COSTCO again. I don't have a membership to SAM's, but that sounds like what I am looking for. Thanks for the replies.

    Never tried frozen before, are they as good as fresh?

    My Costco has them. You have to look closely, they look just like packages for breasts at first glance.

    BJ's has pkgs of 2 doz. and I believe WalMart superstore also has the 2 doz pkg.

    As mentioned Costco does iventory, in the freezer chicken section, 5 or 10 lb pkg, and in the fresh poultry section again about 5 lb whole wings. (With flipper still attached.) The biggest difference you will notice cooking fresh wings vs frozen will be the color of the bone after cook. (Bones on frozen product will turn darker in color.)

    Just got back from BJ's, picked up their new 3 dozen size pack. Comes like the Costco packaging. Pull apart 6 packs that fit in the freezer easier. Probably won't try them out for a week or so.
