5#4 then they need to learn how to process a chicken.
A couple years ago we were doing a chicken bbq and processed about 60 chickens. The odd things was they were all the same brand, bought at the same store at the same time, about half of them had giblets and have did not
Since no one else in my house likes them I always cook them up as a chef's treat before the meal

6I've found that, in the US, it depends on the brand and quality of the supermarket chicken. Cheap supermarket brands don't come with giblets; more expensive brands do. In the US, if there are no giblets, the chicken package has to be so labeled. The industry term for such poultry is "wogs," without giblets (I didn't know that). And, I'd agree--a lot of people don't know what to do with giblets these days and find raw giblets "icky."
It's cheaper not to have to package the giblets & stuff them inside chickens. I see livers, gizzards & necks sold separately. A lot of giblets wind up in cat & dog food.
Here's what the US food safety folks say about forgetting the package:
Accidental Cooking in Packaging
Some giblets are paper wrapped before being inserted into the poultry body cavity. In this case, there would be no concern if the giblets are accidentally cooked inside the bird to a safe temperature.
If giblets were packed in a plastic bag, and the bag has been altered or melted by the cooking process, do not use the giblets or the poultry because harmful chemicals may have leached into the surrounding meat. If the plastic bag was not altered, the giblets and poultry should be safe to use as long as the meat is fully cooked.

7The industry term for such poultry is "wogs"
Definitely politically incorrect in England.
