Tyson showed $13.5 billion in sales for the quarter, an increase of 8.2% over the same period last year. Chicken sales were $4.37 billion, an increase of 26% year-over-year, despite a loss in unit volume of 2.1%. Tyson charged an average of 20% more this quarter for its chicken products, accounting for the sales increase.
