3 percent more than the preceding December. The 1966 total of broiler chicks
hatched was 2,739. 1 million, which is 9 percent more than the 1965 hatch and an
all time record high. The number of broiler-type eggs in incubators on
January 1, 1967 was up 1 percent from January 1, 1966.


Egg-type chicks hatched during December are estimated at 35. 7 million chicks,
an increase of 32 percent from December 1965. Increases occurred in all regions
and are recorded at 54 percent in the South Central, 49 percent in the South Atlantic,
40 percent in the West North Central, 27 percent in the East North Central, 21 per-
cent in the West, and 10 percent in the North Atlantic. The hatch of egg-type chicks
during 1966 totaled 574.8 million, 18 percent more than in 1965 and the largest
annual total since 1958. The number of egg-type eggs in incubators on January 1
was 18 percent above a year earlier.
