A caravan of chicken wing lovers began a trek last weekend across New York in search of the best wings.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

N.Y. native Matt Reynolds, a documentary filmmaker, was leading the “Great Chicken Wing Hunt.” He planned to make a film about his findings at the trek's completion.

Reynolds said he got the idea while working as a journalist in Slovakia, where he made it his mission to introduce chicken wings to Europeans.

The eclectic group includes a cameramen, a guitar player and a competitive eater from Rochester nicknamed “Mighty Thor.”

The bunch was planning on making stops in the Adirondacks, Watertown, Syracuse and Rochester.

They will end the tour at the birthplace of the chicken wing — Buffalo — where they plan on attending the National Wing Festival on Labor Day weekend.
