This Chicken Egg Situation Report presents the chicken egg industry in terms of volume of production, inventory of laying flock, and average farmgate price. The report is prepared to serve as a ready reference for PSA’s various clients and stakeholders in the agriculture sector. It is released quarterly; that is, every February, May, August, and November.

Concepts and Definitions

Volume of production refers to the volume of chicken egg disposed from locally-raised chicken including those table 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 costs (if any) incurred in selling the produce, are not included in the farmgate prices. The 2019 to 2021 farmgate prices included in this special release were based on the revised method of computation by the Price Statistics Division (PSD).
