November 1963 *- -- Dcember 13, 1963
Chicks HItcheT S. DEPOSITORY
Hatcheries in the United States produced 198,153,000 chicks in November as com-
pared with 192,520,000 in November 1962, according to the Crop Reporting Board.
Broiler chicks totaled 174,777,000 -- up 2 percent from November last year. During
the 11 month period, January through November, there were 2,062,917,000 broiler
chicks hatched -- 2 percent more than were hatched during the comparable period in
1962. Broiler-type eggs in incubators on December 1 were up 10 percent from
December 1 last year indicating that the broiler hatch will be larger in December
1963 than in December 1962.
There were 23,376,000 egg-type chicks hatched in November -- 7 percent more
than in November 1962. Increases were 34 percent in the East North Central States,
17 percent in the West South Central, 14 percent in the East South Central, 13 per-
cent in the South Atlantic, and 8 percent in the Pacific Coast States. Decreases
were 26 percent in the New England States, 24 percent in the Mountain, 12 percent
in the West North Central, and 8 percent in the Mid-Atlantic States. The number of
egg-type chicks in incubators on December 1 was up 14 percent from December 1 last
year indicating a larger egg-type hatch in December 1963 than in December 1962.



Poults Hatched

Heavy breed poults hatched in November totaled 1,349,000 -- up 31 percent
from November last year but 23 percent less than the hatch in November 1961. The
hatch of heavy white breeds totaled 940,000 -- an increase of 9 percent. The hatch
of other heavy breeds (mostly broad breasted bronze) totaled 409,000, about two and
one-half times larger than the hatch in November last year. Production of light
breed poults totaled 456,000 -- up 55 percent from November last year. During the
period January through November, the hatch of turkey poults was 98,807,000 -- an
increase of 2 percent from comparable period in 1962. The 11 months hatch of heavy
white breeds was 32,904,000 -- an increase of 4 percent; other heavy breeds was
56,019,000 -- fractionally lower than a year earlier; and light breed hatch at
9,884,000 was up 6 percent. The number of heavy breed eggs in incubators on Decem-
ber 1 was up 27 percent from December 1 last year indicating a larger heavy type
hatch in December than a year ago. The hatch of light breed poults in December
1963 will also be larger than in December 1962, as the number of light breed eggs
in incubators on December 1 was 3 percent larger than on December 1, 1962.
