Chicken shortage shuts majority of KFC outlets across Britain

KFC UK is experiencing a chicken shortage across the country with hundreds of stores closing and reopening throughout the week.

KFC said it was all due to "teething problems" with a new delivery contractor, which meant it ran out of chicken at some stores.

"The kids, who are nine-year-old twins, they wanted chicken and clearly it wasn't available, so we said there's nothing available that we wanted, and we then had the joy of queuing to get back out again", she added.

"However, we expect the disruption to some restaurants to continue over the remainder of the week, meaning some will be closed and others operating with a reduced menu or shortened hours".

KFC said that its teams were "working flat out" to resolve the crisis but that it was too early to tell how long the supply problems would last.

The fast-food giant tweeted a statement with a picture that had been captioned: "The Colonel is working on it".

"We tried to warn KFC this decision would have consequences - well now the chickens are coming home to roost", he said.

The KFC website has released a statement and a list of outlets which remain open.

You may have heard the uproar about KFC shops being forced to close after a delivery blunder left them all outta chicken.

"The chicken crossed the road, just not to our restaurants", read a post by KFC UK & Ireland, on their social media page. The website now has a dedicated page that updates the list of open restaurants in the United Kingdom.

KFC fast food restaurants in the United Kingdom are failing at their one job - to provide fried chicken to their customers.

But after the change in the contract, numerous food giant's outlets began running out of chicken products.

DHL announced in November that it was chosen to manage the supply and distribution and packaging of KFC products, with British company Quick Service Logistics.

DHL said operational issues had delayed or rendered incomplete a number of its deliveries, CNN Money reported.
