Can anyone remember a time where so many egg farms have burned to the ground over such a short period of time?
It seems that every day that goes by, another farm goes up in flames.
Worse yet, it seems like every subsequent farm that burns is bigger than the last!
Enter New Zealand…

Saturday at 1:00, the largest egg producing farm in the entire country just caught fire, killing more than 50,000 chickens.
New Zealand, which is already facing a severe egg shortage, may be in dire straits now as it pertains to eggs.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d assume somebody hates eggs.

The Gateway Pundit has the latest:
Fears are growing that New Zealand’s already severe egg shortage could get much worse after a major fire devastated the country’s largest egg farm, killing more than 50,000 hens.
John McKay, CEO of Zeagold Nutrition, has confirmed that a fire broke out at the company’s Waikato egg farm on Monday morning.
“A supervisor on-site at our farm called the fire department at 7:40 am today. All 12 staff members on site are safe and unharmed,” McKay told NZ Herald.
50,000 dead hens was the early estimate..
Apparently the number could be between 75,000 and 100,000.

75 000 chickens were killed in a fire in New Zealand worsening fears of an egg shortage.
Why has there been so many fires at food production places recently?

Fears of worsening egg shortage in New Zealand as fire kills 50,000 hens at farm
There are concerns the blaze at the Zeagold facility will exacerbate a dearth of eggs caused by a ban on battery farminghttps://t.co/x1dwhYaia4

The Guardian has more on the estimates:
The fire at a Zeagold farm broke out on Monday morning and had “taken better part of the day to contain”, a spokesperson for the company said. Twelve workers who were on site were “unharmed but very distressed”, the spokesperson said. Work was under way to assess how many hens had died, but Zeagold estimated it to be about 75,000. The company later revised that number down to 50,000.
The fire may have ripple effects beyond the immediate demise of the hens, with concerns it may worsen a national scarcity of eggs.
Zeagold’s spokesperson said it was still too early to say how much of an effect the fire would have on the overall supply chain, saying: “There will be some impact obviously – it’s not a great thing to happen in the middle of a shortage.”

It seems these egg shortages are happening almost everywhere. Simultaneously.
It is a coincidence or the result of 'fowl' play? https://t.co/cEeXiBQ98H
