How many chickens are raised on farms in Maine?


In my science class, we are looking at how climate affects domestic and wild animals. My animal of choice is the chicken. Do you have data related to the population of chickens in Maine, specifically Aroostook County?


The Census of Agriculture would be your best place to look. Select the Census year (2017 is the latest), then select county-level data, click on Maine on the map, then the table for “poultry inventory and number sold.” Androscoggin has been the county with huge egg layer operations in the past and so the data for this county may be missing. Good luck with your research.
