Chick prices move higher yet again

Chick prices continue to move even higher due to a combination of bird flu and strong demand from poultry farmers.

Yisheng and Minhe, two of the largest producers, announced that prices are now 7 yuan per bird.

In the March 7th commentary, Sitonia noted that prices were at 6.6 yuan per bird, already up dramatically from 4.4 yuan at the beginning of February. Since the beginning of the year, chick prices are up 350%
