hatched totaled 208, 498, 000 slightly above the production of 207, 635, 000 in June
last year. During the first 6 months of 1964 there were 1,215,109, 000 broiler
chicks hatched, an increase of 2 percent from comparable period in 1963. The
number of broiler-type eggs in incubators on July 1 was 2 percent above July 1,
1963 indicating a larger hatch of broiler chicks in July 1964 than in July last year.

There were 47, 029, 000 egg-type chicks hatched in June, 13 percent above the
number hatched in June 1963. All sections of the country reported increases
above a year ago 1 percent in the West North Central States, 2 percent in the
North Atlantic, 14 percent in the West, 18 percent in the East North Central, 21 per-
cent in the South Central States, and 31 percent in the South Atlantic States.

up 25 percent from June last year. The hatch of other heavy breeds (mostly
broad-breasted bronze) was 8,117,000 down 6 percent from June last year.
The hatch of light breed poults totaled 1,570, 000, an increase of 4 percent from
