Chicken Shortage Expected to End Soon

By: Dane Kennedy


The shortage and  spiraling prices for  chicken especially in Demerara  are  expected  to end  soon, but there  are reports  of  hoarding  in outlying  areas .Agricultural Minister Robert Persaud  said that his ministry has received reports  of  the situation.

Several super markets across the country were feeling the effects of the chicken shortage, and the prices for chicken went up drastically. However,  in other parts of the country prices for chicken were much lower than that in  Georgetown.

The current shortage being experienced came about as a result of a shortfall in feed production as well as problems in securing the quantities of hatching eggs to meet local demands.
