Chicks Hatched

Hatcheries in the United States produced 271, 007, 000 chicks during
March--6 percent less than in March 1962 according to the Crop Reporting
Board. The number of broiler chicks hatched was 199, 806, 000--4 percent
less than in March last year. During the first 3 months of 1963 there were
543, 227, 000 broiler chicks produced--down 2 percent from same period
in 1962. Compared with a year earlier, the number of eggs in incubators
on April 1 indicate that the hatch of broiler chicks in April this year will be
about the same as in April 1962.

The were 71, 201, 000 egg-type chicks hatched in March--10 percent
less than in March last year but about the same number as hatched in March
1960. The number hatched during January through March of this year was
144, 234, 000--down 2 percent from same period last year. The hatch of
egg-type chicks during March this year in the East North Central and West
North Central States was the smallest of record. The number of eggs in
incubators on April 1, compared with a year earlier, indicate that the egg-
type in April this year will be about the same as in April 1962.



Poults Hatched

The number of heavy breed turkey poults hatched by hatcheries in the
United States during March 1963 was larger than in March 1962. The
hatch of light breeds was about the same as in March last year. The hatch
of heavy white breeds was 4, 978, 000, an increase of 21 percent, and
other heavy breeds 10, 867, 000--up 9 percent. The hatch of light breed
poults totaled 744, 000 compared with 745, 000 in March last year. There
were 27, 553, 000 turkey poults hatched during the first three months of 1963.
This was 13 percent more than during these months in 1962. The cumula-
tive hatch of heavy white breeds was 9, 080, 000--up 11 percent, other heavy
breeds up 13 percent, and light breeds up 23 percent. The number of turkey
eggs in incubators on April 1, compared with April 1 last year indicates
that the hatch of heavy white breeds in April will be larger than in April last
year. The hatches of other heavy breeds and light breeds will be smaller.
