I know it’s just me, but I’m curious how many chickens there are in a backyard.
The chicken is just a small part of the household food chain, but it’s a very important one.
According to the USDA, in the United States, we eat nearly 100 million chickens per year.
In fact, we only eat about three billion chicken eggs each year.
And while you might think that would be a lot, the number of chickens actually is pretty small.
The average American eats only about six pounds of chicken each year—that’s about three-quarters of what chickens are actually eaten.
And when it comes to food waste, chickens are just a tiny part of it.
They only make up about 10 percent of all the food waste.
There’s a lot of chicken waste out there, and we’ve only just started to figure out how much of it is actually edible.
To help you figure it out, I spoke with Jennifer Meehan, an animal scientist at the University of New South Wales and a coauthor of a new book called Backyard Chicken: The Hidden Story of One of the Most Endangered Birds on Earth.
Meehm talked about the chicken’s unique nutritional profile, how much is wasted, and what we can do to make our food system cleaner.
The Chicken: Is it good for us?
How much is it good?
How do we make sure that it’s not just a garbage pile?
Chicken eggs The number one reason chickens get into the food system is because of their eggs.
About 50 percent of chicken eggs go into processed foods, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
It’s a big problem because chickens are such large birds that the eggs that they produce are typically about the size of a medium-sized hamburger, and they’re actually more nutritious than most other birds.
That’s why chickens are so popular for eggs.
In the U: S, chicken eggs are generally a whole lot smaller than their human counterparts, but the size matters, because they are so much more nutritious.
Chicken egg whites can be as nutritious as a regular egg, according a USDA study.
In a 2009 study, chickens were also more likely to be the source of a nutrient in a chicken egg than the average American.
A 2009 study from Cornell University found that a diet rich in poultry eggs is associated with an increased risk of certain cancers, such as breast, prostate, and colon cancers.
But that’s not all.
As a group, chickens produce the most amount of omega-3 fatty acids (found in oily fish), which are essential for omega-6 fatty acids, which are found in eggs.
If you don’t get enough omega-5s, you may develop chronic diseases.
A 2007 study by the University at Buffalo found that women who ate the most omega-2 fatty acids in their diet were more likely than men to develop diabetes.
And in another study, the same researchers found that eating eggs was associated with a higher risk of developing obesity and type 2 diabetes.
government recently added chicken eggs to its Food Safety Modernization Program, which will allow for the food industry to track and remove any eggs from their supply.
Chicken bones and feathers The bones and skins are the main source of calcium, which is the building block of bones in the bones of chickens.
They are also used to make feathers, which can be used to create wing feathers.
A 2006 study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that chicken bones and their skins contain more calcium than other birds, including turkey and ducks.
The USDA estimates that chickens can absorb up to 20 percent of their body weight in calcium.
Chicken intestines The intestines of chickens are usually about the same size as the human digestive tract.
They have a small amount of space for bacteria, which provides a lot more nutrients to the intestines than other animals.
It is also important to note that chickens have a relatively small intestine compared to other mammals.
In one study, they were able to extract as much calcium as a human baby at only 6.3 mg per kilogram.
In another study that looked at how much calcium was extracted from chicken intestines, it was found that it only takes about a quarter of the amount of calcium that the average human would be able to absorb in their entire diet.
Chicken feathers The feathers that chickens produce are also important.
According a study published last year in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they contain about 60 percent more protein than other feathers, and up to 25 percent more fat than other feather products.
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) estimates that an average chicken can produce around 30 pounds of feathers per year, which adds up to more than 400 pounds of protein and 25 percent of the fat.
Chicken breasts and wings Many chickens have two pairs of wings that they use to fly.
And that means they
