More than 50 million chickens were killed in this country.  What a sad situation for the farmers.  I have pet birds (parakeets), and I make sure they stay inside whenever there are avian flu outbreaks as there really is no cure.  I remember last year many of the wild songbirds were dying as well.

 

I do not purchase eggs that much any more, so the current price increases really do not have too much impact on me.  

 

I think I can live without buying Wagyu roasts.   I do splurge on certain QVC food items during the holiday season, and I have been very satisfied with all of my purchases.

 

Many farms in Canada have avian flu and had to destroy everything. Many animals can get infected. I know the cat rescues in Canada took in many cats that were on these farms but so far they got them out in time.

I laughed this morning when Dan Hughes was talking about rising prices and said he wouldn't doubt that someone will give their loved one a dozen eggs for Valentine's Day the price for eggs has increased so much......😆😆😆😆😆🐔🐔🐔

 

At our local store a dozen large eggs went from $3.96 in price to $6.98

Oh my goodness!!! I thought 7.99 a dozen at Walmart was high.😳


I guess I grabbed a bargain when a dozen large eggs cost $4.99 yesterday.

It's on sale for 4 for $5 this week at Stop & Shop, if you have that supermarket locally.

 

I notice I'm buying less junk food - Not about to pay $3 for a bag of chips!!!

Same thing this week at Giant, a sister company to Stop & Shop.  Well, it was 8 for $10, must buy 8.

 

The regular price at Giant and other stores is indeed $5.00 or more.  I always take note when I see someone removing cans from the shelf and putting in their cart at that price.  They'd be better off learning to make soup.

I am excited to find a local farmer here is selling (2) 18 count organic eggs for $8.00

I will be picking up several of them tomorrow. We do eat eggs frequently, so this will be a great find.😊

@nada54 were these organic eggs? My sister bought Land O' Lakes eggs today for $4.89. I have 6 eggs I'm holding onto like they're gold, going food shopping tomorrow and hope they're not too expensive.

@Jordan2  No they were not.   They are 'cage free'.   But that is all they sell here now,  that is actually when they first started going up.  They were actually just store brand.  It's terrible.
