In 2022, British Columbia produced over 10,428,000 dozen hatching eggs valued at $73.9 million. That contributed to the 190 million kilograms of eviscerated chicken produced for consumption in our province.
British Columbia is the third largest hatching egg producing province supplying approximately 15% of the Canadian market share.
The hatching egg producers throughout the province boast family owned farms and practice strict protocols for safe, healthy, happy birds.
The benefits of managed supply of the hatching egg industry are highlighted in the industry's stability and strategies deployed for AI, supply and demand, and over the health of the public and poultry production.
