Almost as bad in Europe and the UK. In the EU they changed the law to allow farmers to sell barn eggs labeled as Free Range because the bird flu controls made them keep them indoors.

A couple stores in my area (Oregon, USA) have been "limiting" egg purchases, which is to say if the limit is two cartons, no one is going to stop you from buying ten.

NZ has egg shortages as well, but, but I have been assured that this was all Biden's fault. I did not know he set farming policy for the Kiwi's- who knew?

What are you all paying for a dozen large, white? The cheapest I've seen here is 4.88$.

Sprouts is still fairly cheap for some reason. I'm starting to wonder if they don't have their own supply chain.

$3.50 for a dozen large brown, $4.70 for 18 large brown.

I haven't bought cage eggs in decades, and I make an effort to get eggs from very low-density free range suppliers. Nevertheless, if Australia cut off cage eggs tomorrow, as they should, I would be faced with fierce competition for my overpriced eggs from the bastards who used to buy that shiat. So clearly, many who buy cage eggs can afford better, but they choose to save money by supporting cruel practices, and don't care that the eggs they buy taste of despair and pain.
