A 30-kg bag of broiler pre-starter concentrate 30 per cent sold at Rs 1,600, while a 50-kg layer concentrate bag quoted at Rs 1,425.

Pre-lay mash quoted at Rs 1,030 while broiler finisher sold at Rs 1,440 for a 50-kg bag each.

Higher demand lifted broiler and chick prices. Broiler improved by Rs 14 at Rs 65 a kg, while chick prices increased by Rs 2 at Rs 10-12.

Egg was unchanged at Rs 3.15 a piece on Wednesday.
