In the 1920s, the poultry industry experienced significant growth, leading to an increase in chicken farms and backyard chicken coops. This expansion allowed more people to raise and care for chickens, resulting in a growing number of individuals known for their chicken-related work and expertise.
During World War II, many men left their farms to serve in the military, leaving a gap in agricultural labor. As a result, numerous women took on the role of farming, including raising and tending to chickens. These pioneering female farmers became known as 'chicken ladies' due to their dedication and expertise in poultry farming.
In the 1960s, the concept of backyard chickens experienced a resurgence. Urban and suburban areas saw a growing interest in self-sustainability and organic food production. Many individuals started keeping chickens in their backyards for eggs and meat. The term 'chicken lady' became more commonly used to describe women who embraced this trend and took part in backyard chicken keeping.
In the 1980s, the Canadian sketch comedy show 'Kids in the Hall' featured a recurring character named 'The Chicken Lady.' Played by Mark McKinney, this character had a bizarre fascination with chickens and displayed eccentric behavior associated with chickens. The popularity of this character further solidified the term 'chicken lady' in popular culture.
Today, the term 'chicken lady' continues to be used to refer to women who have a passion for chickens or are involved in chicken-related activities, such as farming, advocacy, or keeping backyard poultry. It has become a positive and often endearing term, symbolizing women's empowerment in the poultry industry and their contributions to sustainable food practices.
