There are 19 billion chickens on the planet according to the United Nations. The Nation with the highest chicken to human ratio is Bahrain. The gulf nation apparently has 40 chickens for every person, much more than a chicken in every pot. I wonder how they figure this stuff out.
Also to know is, how many chickens are consumed each year in the world?
In 2011/2012 there were roughly 7 billion people in the world and the average consumption was 14.5 kilograms per person per year. Doing some elementary mathematics, that comes out to 276 million kilograms of chicken consumed per day. If a chicken is roughly 5lb then this equates to 55 million chickens eaten each day.
