THE PHILIPPINES - According to ABS-CBN, while the price of pork goes down, chicken prices take a leap.

Chicken prices are expected to go up as the summer heat intensifies.

According to the Philippine Association of Broilers and Integrators (PABI), hot weather affects the physical growth of chickens, while some are hit by heatstroke.

Chicken growers, however, said the prevailing price in the market should still be P120 per kilo. They said that there is still enough supply in the market even if May has the biggest demand during the year. Farmgate prices also have not changed.
