Guyana's poultry producers have said that they expect the country's chicken and egg shortage, and the resulting rising prices, to normalize by September, according to reports.
Eggs have been imported for broiler production and will produce birds in late September and early October. In addition, producers have switched from ocean freight to air cargo, which should improve hatchability. “Definitely by September the industry would have recovered fully in terms of supply," said David Fernandes with the Guyana Poultry Producers Association. "Most of the producers are saying...by the middle of August they should be able to supply all their regular customers with their needs."
