Broiler chicks totaled 200,239,000, up 3 percent from July last year. During the
first 7 months of 1964 there were 1,415,348,000 broiler chicks hatched, an increase
of 2 percent from the comparable period in 1963. The number of broiler-type eggs
in incubators on August 1 was 4 percent above August 1, 1963, indicating a larger
hatch of broiler chicks in August 1964 than in August last year.

There were 31,640,000 egg-type chicks hatched in July, 8 percent above the
number hatched in July 1963. Increases reported were 16 percent in the East North
Central States, 12 percent in the South Atlantic, 8 percent in both the West North
Central and Western States, and 5 percent in the South Central States. The North
Atlantic States reported no change in July hatch from a year ago. The hatch of
egg-type chicks during the first 7 months of 1964 totaled 396,457,000, up 1 percent
from the comparable period last year. Eggs in incubators on August 1 were up
2 percent from August 1 last year indicating a slightly larger August hatch of egg-
