As AA chick market resumed trading after New Year holidays, strong demand drove prices up by RMB0.20-0.70/chick to RMB4.50-4.90/chick.

China breed broiler


Prices of fast growth native broiler increased modestly in Guangdong but remained soft in Jiangsu. Chick prices were stable to higher as some farmers expanded inventories, albeit cautiously.

Meanwhile, prices of hybrid broiler dipped 2%, dragging chick prices considerably lower.
