Just a note if you bait up your TL and then freeze it;
That ba***rd will be frozen solid, and it takes a long time to thaw.  Even if you think it's thawed out, the bottom/middle probably isn't.  It gets to be a really bad time when you're 800' down your set and the last 400' come out as a frozen-solid block. 
I've taken to drilling several 1/2" holes in the bottom of the 5-gallon pails I use to hold my TLs.  With those holes I can flush the bucket with hose water for a while to help quicken the thaw.  Then, if necessary to finish the thaw, I can dunk the bucket in the warm bay water, allowing it to fill from the bottom, before or while setting my line .

 While $1 a lb might be expensive, how many necks make a lb? Compared to how much bait will a leg quarter give you? A leg quarter is much heavier then 1 CN. Do you chop up the leg quarter to get more pieces of bait? Never used a leg quarter before, does it work?

To answer your question, Yes they work fine and I bone them at .49 a pound they are a lot cheaper than the necks however as stated before I still want a 40 pound case of necks for my net rings but I am not going to give the super market that is close to me 1.00 a pound for them. I have other options to get them for free if I want to work a little. Thanks for asking though.

P.S. I use home made hinged bait cages in my home made metal traps for my bait which means the crab don't eat too much of the bait

how many chicken necks in a pound. ... count out enough to make one lb and do the math. if ten makes one pound then you need 15 lbs.

That is a very good price. these robbers up here want 1.00 a lb for them, one of the more exclusive stores had a sale on chicken leg quarters ( Perdue ) .49 a pound so I bought 40 lbs of them and de-boned them packed them in my trap cages and froze them, now I'm ready for the crabs when they migrate north. Darrel do you know where that store is in Maryland? I'll drive there for them before I give these robbers a dollar a pound for the same thing. THANKS FOR THE INFO !

not down here.....I usually get 20 cases of fowl necks at a time.  Last year it was $14 a case for 20 or more cases.  Not sure yet what this year holds for prices.  supposedly a bird shortage.

When I used CN I would buy them in bulk quantity, I think 40# for $22.00 from Northeast grocer on Main Street in North East MD. They do have a website bit I would call to make sure they still sell them before I made the trip. It would be a straight run down Rt. 272 for you.

A bird shortage.  Really.  Have you seen the eastern shore?  Birds everywhere.

I guess that's there excuse for this year's price hike.  $0.59 to $1.00/pound for trash.  they should be paying us to take it! Grin

I'll never forget the 10 cases I bought from Weis, not long ago, for $6/case.  yes, $6 for 40 pounds of necks.  That only lasted 2 years. Grin  I should have bought 1000 cases.
