Chicken Sales Slowly Pick Up
Bird flu has created so much commotion across the world and it has drastically affected the sales of chicken across the world. But recently there is an increase in demand for chicken and the sales are slowly picking up in the market. The poultry industry is thought to be in its recuperation stage.

Mohamed Al Shafei, director of the General Union for Poultry Workers, said that though the industry has suffered a great deal in the past with a large number of chickens culled followed by a sharp fall in the chicken sales but now all of this has been set right. Health authorities have created public awareness through campaigns that the consumption of cooked chicken is risk-free throughout the crisis. He also said that initially there would be a short supply of chicken and it would be nearly impossible to meet all the demands but this situation would be short lived.
