Broiler-Type Eggs Set Up 2 Percent

Commercial hatcheries in the 19 State weekly program set 197 million eggs in incubators during the week ending January 12, 2013. This was up 2 percent from the eggs set the corresponding week a year earlier. Average hatchability for chicks hatched during the week was 85 percent. Average hatchability is calculated by dividing chicks hatched during the week by eggs set three weeks earlier.
