EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - Egg prices have started their normal spring increase that peaks each year around Easter.
As people plan to prepare for traditional recipes and dye eggs for Easter hunts, the higher-than-normal demand causes a temporary price spike.
The March report by the egg industry center at the University of Iowa showed retail prices for January 2021 were about the same as a year ago. Which is around a $1.46 per dozen.
During 2020, prices went down during February before rising to a $1.52 per dozen in March.
And peaking at just over $2 a dozen in April.
Texas A&M poultry specialists say prices will follow a similar trend this year.
