JULY 1963
August 16, 1963

Chicks Hatched

Hatcheries in the United States produced 222,713,000 chicks in July--6 percent
more than in July 1962, according to the Crop Reporting Board. Broiler chicks hatched
totaled 194,262,000--an increase of 5 percent and the largest output for the month of
record. During the first 7 months of 1963 there were 1,382,321,000 broiler chicks
produced--up 2 percent from the comparable period in 1962. The number of broiler-
type eggs in incubators on August 1 was up 3 percent from August 1 last year indicating
that the broiler hatch in August will be larger than in August 1962.

There were 28,451,000 egg-type chicks hatched in July--16 percent more than in
July last year. All sections of the country reported increases over August 1962. The
increases were 1 percent in the Pacific Coast States, 15 percent in the East South
Central, 16 percent in the New England, 18 percent in the Mid-Atlantic, 19 percent in
the South Atlantic, 20 percent in the Mountain, 24 percent in the East North Central,
26 percent in the West North Central, and 41 percent in the West South Central States.
The number of egg-type eggs reported in incubators on August 1 was 17 percent above
that on August 1 last year indicating a larger egg-type chick hatch in August than in
August 1962. Egg-type chicks hatched during the months January through July totaled
390,275,000--practically no change from this period in 1962.


Poults Hatched

The number of heavy breed poults hatched in July was 5,988,000--about the same
as in July 1962. The hatch of heavy white breeds at 2,975,000 was 4 percent more than
in July last year. The hatch of other heavy breeds (mostly broad breasted bronze)
totaled 3,013,000-down 4 percent from August last year. Production of light breed
poults totaled 1,568,000--up 4 percent from August last year. During the months Jan-
uary through July, the hatch of turkey poults was 91,687,000--an increase of 2 percent
from same period in 1962. The January-July hatch of heavy white breeds was 29,312,000
--an increase of 7 percent; other heavy breeds was 54,872,000--a decrease of 1 percent,
and light breeds at 7,503,000 was up 5 percent. The number of eggs in incubators on
August 1 indicates that the hatch of heavy white and other heavy breeds will be smaller
than in August last year. The hatch of light breeds in August is expected to be
slightly larger than in August 1962. The number of heavy white breed eggs in incubators
on August 1 was down 12 percent from August 1 last year, and the number of other heavy
breed eggs was down 7 percent. The number of light breed eggs was up 4 percent from
August 1 last year.
