Chick Production

Hatcheries produced 262 million chicks during January, 3 percent
more than a year earlier, according to the Crop Reporting Board. The
January hatch of broiler-type chicks totaled 221 million, 2 percent more
than a year earlier. Broiler-type eggs in incubators on February 1 were
up 4 percent from a year earlier.


Egg-type chicks hatched during January are estimated at 41 million,
10 percent more than in January 1966 and a record high for the month in
the series beginning with 1955. The January egg-type hatch was above a
year earlier in all regions except the North Atlantic where there was a
2 percent decline. The largest regional increase from January 1966 was
20 percent in the South Atlantic, followed by 16 percent in the East North
Central, 12 percent in the South Central, 8 percent in the West, and
5 percent in the West North Central. The number of egg-type eggs in
incubators on February 1 was 8 percent above a year earlier.


Poult Production


Poult production of all breeds during January 1967 totaled 8, 415, 000
poults, an increase of 43 percent from the same month a year earlier. This
is the fourth consecutive month that the poult hatch has exceeded production
the same month a year earlier by more than 30 percent. The number of turkey
eggs in incubators on February 1, 1967 was 21, 670, 000 or 26 percent more
than February 1 last year.
