Reading Time: < 1 minute

Last month’s Tornadoes and violent storms destroyed 200 chicken houses that held up to four million chickens in Alabama, state officials said. In addition to the destroyed houses, which each hold up to 20,000 chickens, another 180 were damaged. Alabama is No. 3 U.S. chicken producer, behind Georgia and Arkansas. The state has about 14,000 chicken houses that hold approximately 200 million chickens, according to the National Chicken Council. “Thousands of chickens have been lost in the tornadoes, and these numbers could grow as we continue to assess the damage,” Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan said in a statement.
