After 48 million chickens and turkeys were destroyed this year during the avian flu outbreak, limited supplies of baby poultry and not enough space to house them could make it tough for farmers to rebuild their poultry populations, reports Reuters.
Egg prices are going to tick up higher than experts thought, according to estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and could stay high into 2016, while frozen turkeys will likely cost 19% more than they did last year for Thanksgiving.
It’s been two months since the last case of flu was reported, but poultry producers say it could take two years or so of rebuilding to get their flocks back to where they used to be.
Publishers Notes: 48 million chickens is NOTHING! This is a scam and I believe everyone knows it. Yesterday in Walmart, a total of 36 eggs was almost $9.00. Americans will fall for just about anything any more and you'll do nothing to fix it.
