East Coast storm destroys poultry houses

More than a dozen collapse in Delaware, Maryland

A weekend snow storm has led to the collapse of more than a dozen poultry barns in Delaware and Maryland, University of Delaware extension specialist Bill Brown told the Associated Press. He estimated losses at millions of dollars. Delaware’s agriculture secretary said removing snow from roofs as conditions permit could prevent additional collapses.

The weather is further threatening chicken survival by delaying deliveries of feed and fuel.
