Six states hold more than half US hens

California's ranking expected to drop

The latest USDA figures show the top six states hold 56% of U.S. hens, led by Iowa and Ohio (see chart).

Following the 2007 passage of Proposition 2 in California, it is expected California will drop from the list with compensatory expansion in the Midwest and High Plains states. The status of Ohio will depend strongly on the outcome of a referendum.
