    The bird flu is devastating egg industry

    To the Editor:
    The U.S. egg industry is reeling from a colossal outbreak of avian flu, mostly among egg-laying chickens. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 48 million birds, accounting for 11 percent of the nation's egg-laying hens, have been slaughtered for fear of infection during the past few months.
