Avian flu outbreak means egg prices are on the rise

The price of eggs are going up because of an avian flu outbreak. This is not a small outbreak we are talking 1-million-800 birds.

It's the largest outbreak in the Midwest's history according to the Ag Department. Area stores we spoke with say they've had to increase their egg prices by a full dollar for a dozen.

Paul McGraw, the state veterinarian with the Ag Department says farmers should isolate their flock, use disposable footwear, and avoid bird shows.

He says the disease is spreading, even in wild birds, but only killing domestic ones.

He says they have been able to partially lift a ban on exporting our state poultry.
