Drought affecting nation's chicken farms

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Workers at a Missouri farm say the heat and lack of rain affects the amount of feed available and causes chickens to lay less eggs. They say before, they used to get up to 40 dozen eggs a week. Now, they are lucky if they get eight.

The manager at one store says he expects the prices of eggs, poultry and other items to increase in the next month.
