Join us for a viewing of Cluck, Pluck and Luck: The Improbable Early History of Delmarva’s Chicken Industry

This was directed by local documentarian, Michael Oates. In 1923 an Ocean View housewife ordered 50 chicks and received 500. DuPont Highway was completed in 1924. Demand for Kosher meat in New York City was high. Delmarva’s chicken industry was born. Viewers learn about chicken smuggling and World War II blockades, the formation of the Eastern Shore Poultry Grower’s Exchange, new chicken house architecture after Hurricane Hazel, and the rise of Perdue.
