Buffalo Wild Wings' Bird Problem

Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ: BWLD  ) is set to make a huge change, switching from per-piece wing ordering to a portion size system. In this switch, the company hopes to get better control of its costs by synching up the way it charges for wings with the way it pays for them -- by weight.

But it won't be easy.

In the following video, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos discusses why larger chickens are to blame for B-Dub's spiking food costs, and why investors should expect some bumpy quarters ahead as customers adjust to the new system.

Chipotle's stock has been on an absolute tear since the company went public in 2006. Unfortunately, 2012 wasn't kind to Chipotle's stock, as investors question whether its growth has come to an end. Fool analyst Jason Moser's premium research report analyzes the burrito maker's situation and answers the question investors are asking: Can Chipotle still grow?

    I eat at BWW a lot, but they should understand that Hooters also has great wings and they also have great breast and thy's. I don't want large wings when i order buffalo wings i want the smaller wings. If i wanted larger wings i would just order chicken. Its already ridiculously expensive to eat wings. I can go to Ale house and get 35 fried shrimp for under 10 bucks. If the price goes up on the wings i will let the buffalos keep their wings. I always wanted to see a buffalo fly.
