Chicken has become as ubiquitous in America as apple pie or baseball. Americans are now eating more of the beloved white meat than beef. In 1965, Americans were eating 33.7 pounds of chicken per capita. As of last year, that amount has more than doubled to 83.1 pounds per person. All that chicken from an industry that didn't exist 100 years ago. Both chicken meat, and the enormous vertically-integrated industry it takes to produce it, are relatively new phenomena.
