United Kingdom Hatcheries Data – Placings and Eggs Set

The tables below show the number of chicks placed and eggs set by United Kingdom hatcheries. The number of birds placed each month shown below give an indication of future poultry meat and egg production. The number of eggs set each month indicates how many birds will be available for placing in future months. The surveys are run according to statistical, rather than calendar, months with January, April, July and October being five week periods and other months being four week periods. The effect of this is clearly seen in the charts. The twelve month moving totals can be used to get a clearer idea of trends.
