Six hundred outlets of KFC in the United Kingdom ran out of an ingredient, and it wasn't one of the 11 secret herbs and spices. The world-famous chicken chain, ran out of chicken. Yes, you read it right!

And the chickens are all out on Twitter to roost.

Twitter users believe that it is the beginning of the end, as they expect the arrival of the four horsemen of the apocalypse – death, famine, war and conquest.


Sportingly, KFC UK and Ireland tweeted, "The chicken crossed the road, just not to our restaurants," and blamed the shortage of chicken on a contract with their new delivery firm, DHL.

Colonel Sanders got back to the foodies with an update two days later.


When Brits couldn’t get their favourite fast food, they took to Twitter to grieve using the hashtag #KFCCrisis.

How can one talk about shortage of meat without targeting vegans?


Some pointed out that there is no bigger issue than fried chicken shortage.

Nando's- UK's more upscale fast-food chain suddenly needs to be saved.


On the other hand, the health police are happy,

The real police do not care if people do not get fried chicken.

People need their chicken, KFC.


The black market has some new products.


Legend says, return the Kohinoor and thou shall get your chicken.
