US Egg Crisis

Please spare a thought for our American friends, not only do they find it damned near impossible to buy or make a decent fryup in the US, there is now a national egg shortage which is driving up egg prices rapidly. Spare a thought too for the 44 million chickens which have been slaughtered since bird flu broke out in December last year and all the people and businesses who relied on their stirling work.

Seriously though, companies producing vaccines may find their operations compromised as a result of a diminishing supply of eggs to incubate vaccines in and are having to take ‘biosecurity’ measures which Dr Fry likes to think might be hens with guns.
