I was just looking at the most recent results from this poll. I am very surprised that only 7% of people raise them for meat. It seemed the percentage stayed constant the entire time. I would conclude that this is a pretty accurate representation due to it's consistancy. I'm very curious why this is such a low percentage, seeing as there are so many people that keep chickens for other reasons. I think it was Greyfields that said only a scant 1% of Americans raise their own chickens for meat. I guess he was right (as usual). Any ideas why people, especially people who already keep chickens, don't raise chickens strictly for meat. Anxious to hear what everybody thinks as this has me dumb-founded.
