    Abdulaziz Al-Sayed, Head of the Poultry Division, said in exclusive statements to Al- Masry Al -Youm that the heat wave affected the price of chicks today , as breeders accelerated the process of distributing courses to slaughterhouses to avoid losses in white meat and eggs, which benefited the breeder and encouraged an increase in the entry of new courses after distributing old courses, which stimulated the market and increased supply.

    The reasons for the low price of chicks today

    Dr. Tharwat Al-Zeini, head of the General Federation of Poultry Producers, stated that the price of chickens has declined in the market, due to the availability of corn, soy products and fodder raw materials, in addition to the recent acceleration of production processes.

    He revealed, during a telephone interview with him on the “Al-Hayat Al-Youm” program broadcast on the “Al-Hayat” screen, that the price of chicks on the farm has decreased over the past two weeks by more than 15%. To reduce it from 68 to 54 pounds, as the consumer price increases by between 7 and 10 pounds.

    He explained that the purchasing power of chicks is medium. And this is in light of the consumer’s dependence on festive meat and the income of some citizens was affected, pointing to the increase in the carton of eggs to 108 pounds at the farm, after 4 months of continuous decline.
