than the corresponding month a year earlier. During the first 4 months of 1967,
there were 944 million broiler chicks produced--up 4 percent from the same months
last year. Broiler-type eggs in incubators on May 1 were down 2 percent from a

The number of egg-type chicks hatched during April is estimated at 76 million,
6 percent less than in April 1966. All regions recorded decreases from a year
earlier except the South Atlantic which was up 7 percent and the West which increased
3 percent. The decreases in the other regions were as follows: North Atlantic--14
percent, East North Central--6 percent, West North Central--14 percent and the
South Central--2 percent.

During the first 4 months of 1967, there were 230 million egg-type chicks
hatched, an increase of 3 percent from the same 4 months ol 1966. The number of
egg-type eggs in incubators on May 1 was 9 percent below May 1 a year earlier.
This is the second consecutive month that egg-type eggs in incubators have been
below the corresponding month the previous year.

Poult Production
Poult production of all breeds during April 1967 totaled 22, 918, 000 down
3 percent from the April 1966 hatch of 23, 623, 000 poults. The hatch of heavy breeds
totaled 21,896,000 poults compared with 22,110,000 poults the same month a year
