Chicks Hatche

Hatcheries in the United States produced 202,016,000 chicks in August--3 per-
cent more than in August 1962 according to the Crop Reporting Board. Broiler chicks
hatched totaled 177,306,000--an increase of 2 percent. During the first 8 months
of 1963 there were 1,559,627,000 broiler chicks hatched--up 2 percent from the com-
parable period in 1962. The number of broiler-type eggs in incubators on September 1
was down 1 percent from September 1 last year indicating that the broiler hatch in
September will be slightly less than in September 1962.

There were 24,710,000 egg-type chicks hatched in August--13 percent more than
in August last year. Increases were 9 percent in the Mid-Atlantic States, 25 per-
cent in the West South Central, 26 percent in the East North Central, 28 percent
in the South Atlantic, 35 percent in the Mountain, 42 percent in the East South
Central, and 43 percent in the West North Central States.' Decreases were 12 per-
cent in the Pacific Coast States and 14 percent in the New England States. The
number of egg-type eggs reported in incubators on September 1 was 13 percent above
that on September 1 last year indicating a larger egg-type hatch in September than
in September 1962. Egg-type chicks hatched during the months January through August
totaled 414,985,000--up 1 percent from this period in 1962.


Poults Hatched

The number of heavy breed poults hatched in August was 1,690,000--down 11 per-
cent from August last year. The hatch of heavy white breeds at 1,401,000 was 9
percent less than in August last year. The hatch of other heavy breeds (mostly
broad-breasted bronze) totaled 289,000--a decrease of 18 percent from August last
year. Production of light breed poults totaled 1,046,000--down 1 percent from
August last year. During the months January through August, the hatch of turkey
poults was 94,423,000--an increase of 2 percent from same period in 1962. The
January-August hatch of heavy white breeds was 30,713,000--an increase of 6 per-
cent; other heavy breeds was 55,161,000--a decrease of 1 percent, and light breeds
at 8,549,000 was up 4 percent. The number of eggs in incubators on September 1
indicate that the hatch of both heavy breed and light breed poults will be smaller
than in September last year. The number of heavy breed eggs in incubators on
September 1 was down 30 percent from September 1 last year. The number of light
breed eggs was down 6 percent from September 1 last year.
