I met a health inspector at the United gate who was on a layover in Denver. Random chit chat about travel turned to a conversation about the devastating effects of avian flu on the chicken population of America’s midwest. The guy said 10 million chickens dropped dead in a very short period but it looks like he understated things.
He also said the price of chickens and eggs will be going up. Act surprised. The plane started boarding and we went our separate ways before I could ask him if the Maryland chicken mills were affected but I guess we’ll all find out soon enough.
Enjoy your quiches while you may.
