However, some of the retailers said the prices of live bird and its meat were declined to attract buyers to purchase more and more as the sale of chicken meat declined sharply after due to day today closure of market on strikes and frequent firing incidents. They expressed hope that with the reduction of price the demand might increase substantially.
The broiler live bird is tagged at Rs 128 per kg and cull birds live at Rs 72 per kg at wholesale. At retail the broiler live bird is tagged at Rs 130 per kg and cull birds live at Rs 74 per kg. Karachiites consume around 400,000 poultry birds daily when prices were high but the daily demand reaches up to 450,000-500,000 birds when live bird and its meat prices declined.
