"From Farm To Factory: The Unstoppable Rise Of American Chicken"

"How industrial chicken farming transformed an ‘alternative’ meat to the most consumed meat in the US"

"A century ago, Americans would not recognise our modern hunger for chicken. The year-long market for tender but relatively bland chicken meat is a newish phenomenon, and without it the idea of chicken cutlets, $5 rotisseries, or the McNugget would be a fantasy.

How did America go from thinking of chicken as an “alternative” meat to consuming it more than any other meat?

The story starts with corn."
