According to Pakistan’s Business Recorder newspaper, the chairman of the Pakistan Poultry Association reports serious challenges to the country’s poultry industry as a result of a 40% drop in the production of day-old chicks. As a result, prices of day-old chicks, broiler chickens and eggs are on the rise.

Despite the challenges, the industry is growing at an annual rate of 8% to 10%, according to the association’s chairman, Muhammad Aslam. He added that 1.5 million Pakistani families are involved in poultry and egg production.
