Table-egg layer flock averaged 302.6 million layers in April, a 6.2% year-over-year decrease.

As of June 9, highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreaks had resulted in total losses of 30.7 million table-egg layers since the beginning of the year, according to the latest USDA “Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook.” But discoveries have slowed, with only two new detections in commercial table-egg layer flocks in May, which resulted in the loss of 0.15 million egg layers. An additional discovery impacted 1.9 million layers at the beginning of June.
