    Hi I'm about half a year into raising my first flock of chickens. In my english class we're doing an essay about anything we want so I chose chickens. I was wondering if anyone knows approx. how many people in the U.S. (who aren't farmers) own chickens and the rate of popularity growth. Thanks so much to anyone who answers! [​IMG]

    Hard to put a number on those of us non-farmers who have backyard chickens..I'm sure quite a few ( such as myself ) tend to fly under the radar because of zoning and/or land-use issues..

    Wish I had a better answer for you, and welcome to the group !! [​IMG] [​IMG]
