    Just guessing here but I'd say they know you have to buy more to get more with chicken wings. For an example if you were going to feed a family of 5 with chicken legs you would probably guesstimate 2 per person where if you were going to go with wings you would figure 7-10 per person. So 20 wings would feed 2-3 people. Think about how many pieces are actually in a package of chicken wings in the meat section. Like I said I am just guessing. Good question

    Even I think it is because of the quantity. One need more chicken wings than chicken legs.

    Wings are perceived as trendy kewl because of a tremendously successful marketing campaign to get people to eat those useless chicken parts.

    The marketing success means that the chicken wing buyers have to devote the effort to getting a few scraps off the bones, which the food companies technologically cannot accomplish.

    So the food companies have created a profit center on an item they would just have to sell for fertilizer.
