DID you know that there are more chickens in the world than any other bird?

More than 50 billion chickens are reared every year for food - both for their meat and their eggs.

In the 1960s chicken was viewed by many people as a treat and they ate less than 1kg of it a year. Today this amount has grown to almost 2kg each month.
