This Chicken Egg Situation Report presents the chicken egg industry in terms of volume of production, inventory of laying flock, and average farmgate price.

Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the volume of chicken egg disposed from locally-raised chicken including those chicken eggs which were shipped out to other regions/provinces.
Inventory refers to the actual number of chicken laying flock and native/improved adult female present in the farm as of a specific reference date.
Farmgate price refers to the price received by raisers for their produce at the location of farm. Thus, the marketing costs, such as the transport and other marketing cost (if any) incurred in selling the produce, are not included in the farmgate prices. The 2020 to 2021 farmgate prices included in this special release were sourced from the Price Statistics Division (PSD), while the 2022 farmgate prices were based on the surveys of Livestock and Poultry Statistics Division (LPSD).
