Tyson blames chicken shortage on roosters

Tyson says that a chicken shortage is partly to blame on its roosters.

Tyson cites a decline in hatchings earlier this year, saying that it made a bad decision on the male it uses for breeding. It is now in the process of swapping out that type of rooster but says that reverting back will take some time.

Tyson declined to share what will happen to the rejected roosters or how many are being eliminated.
