Chicks Hatched

Hatcheries in the United States produced 305, 041, 000 chicks during May--
4 percent more than in May 1962, according to the Crop Reporting Board. Broiler
chicks hatched totaled 224, 197, 000, an increase of 7 percent from May 1962 and
the largest output for any month of record. During the first 5 months of 1963 there
were 982, 303, 000 broiler chicks produced--up 1 percent from the comparable period
in 1962. Compared with a year earlier the number of eggs in incubators of June 1
indicates that the hatch of broiler chicks in June will be larger than in June last year
and the largest for the month of record.

There were 80, 844, 000 egg-type chicks hatched in May--3 percent less than
in May last year and the smallest May hatch since records began in 1955. The number
of egg-type chicks hatched during May was down 14 percent in Mountain States, 10
percent in the New England, 8 percent in the Mid-Atlantic, 7 percent in the East
North Central and Pacific, and 6 percent in the West North Central States. The
hatch increased 21 percent in the East South Central, 16 percent in the West South
Central and 15 percent in the South Atlantic States. The number of egg-type chicks
hatched during the months January through May was 320, 036, 000--down 2 percent
from this period in 1962. The number of eggs in incubators on June 1, compared
with a year earlier, indicate that the egg-type hatch in June will be larger than in
June 1962.

Poults Hatched

The number of heavy breed poults hatched during May totaled 19, 441, 000--
down 6 percent from May last year. The hatch of heavy white breeds at 6,196, 000
was 2 percent less than in May 1962. Other heavy breed poults (mostly broad
breasted bronze) totaled 13, 245, 000--down 8 percent from May last year. Production
of light breed poults totaled 1, 527, 000--up 2 percent from May 1962. During the
first 5 months of the year, the hatch of turkey poults was 68, 666, 000, an increase
of 2 percent. The hatch of heavy white breeds was 21, 023, 000, an increase of 6
percent from this period a year earlier; other heavy breeds was 43, 210, 000, approxi-
mately the same as a year earlier; and light breeds at 4, 433, 000 was up 10 percent.
The number of eggs in incubators on June 1, compared with June 1 last year in-
dicates that the hatch of heavy breed poults in June will be larger than in June last
year. The hatch of light breeds will be smaller. The number of heavy breed eggs
in incubators on June 1 was up 5 percent from June 1 last year. The number of light
breed eggs was down 9 percent.
