(SKY NEWS) – The early bird gets the Egg McMuffin, as the saying goes – with McDonald’s across Australia now finishing breakfast 90 minutes earlier. Breakfast will temporarily be served until 10.30am rather than midday as the company reckons with an egg shortage caused by bird flu.

“Like many retailers, we are carefully managing supply of eggs due to current industry challenges,” McDonald’s said on its Australia Facebook page, adding the company is “working hard with our Aussie farmers and suppliers to return this back to normal as soon as possible”.
