    The world has recently reached a milestone of 7 billion people. That is a lot but it does not compare to the amount of chickens in the world....27 BILLION...I think there are more chickens then any other domesticated animal in the world.

    There is not 27 billion chickens. The real number is like 8-10

    What I want to know is who is going around counting all these chickens.

    Cause I am sure that with all the chicks born and all the chickens butchered everyday would make it impossible!

    Quote:Exactly! After all...if they don't lay eggs, they don't count and bantys only count for like 1/3 each and house chickens don't count because they're pets...and...

    Seriously how are they counting this? [​IMG] People are counted by Census and the such, but chickens - Far as I know, no one has surveyed mine. [​IMG]
