Chickens are very important to the Delmarva peninsula and the Mid-Atlantic region. Poultry farmers help Delmarva by increasing the number of jobs, creating tax dollars to make our communities better and improving the way we all live.

Chickens are some of the most important members of our community. The farmers who raise them continue to help Delmarva's economic growth. Through poultry production, these farmers support other local businesses, like soybean farmers who supply meal for chicken feed and construction workers who build chicken houses.
