Thailand runs short of eggs

Recommended Posts

Local Egg farm near Chumphon is out of stock.  Hot season + mild panic buying has them out of stock now as of a few hours ago.   

 

Not sure about Makro/other places in Chumphon.  But the word is getting around though, and causing some locals to take eggstreme measures.

Un ouef already, the recipe is scrambled

and the chef halfboiled.

 

What next chocolate blocked, Anna Peel for Banana pancakes by those forced to sanuk on a tropical beach rather than plague ravaged cities.

 

P.S. Im wearing my Jatukom lucky Omelette availble at all good cracks

They must be Ostrich eggs at that price.

My wife just came back with a tray of 30 = 150 baht, tells me she couldn't get them cheaper than that, the usual lady she buys them from used to charge her 100 baht, now 170 baht, words exchanged and will NEVER be going back to her.

 

This latest lot from a friend who has a shop who told her she paid 140 baht for them in the main market this morning, but had to buy 5 trays as they wouldn't sell singles, and we can believe that because my wife yelled out from the car this morning when we were there, any single trays she yelled as we could see the 5 trays bundled, well what was left of them, about 5 x 5 and they said 140 baht per tray, but you have to buy 5 trays, we declined, don't have that big a family and already have 2 trays x 30 which now brings it to 3 x 3 trays of 30 eggs and with 6 of us, they won't last long, rashen times for the family 🙂

The price of eggs has increased due to hoarding by people worried about the Covid-19 virus – and the rising summer temperature making hens less productive.

For 'city Thais' who buy their eggs from retailers who buy their eggs from feed-lots.
In rural villages?  I can throw a rock in just about any direction and hit a hen-house.
