The U.S. poultry industry is trying to figure out why, over the first five months of the year, the percentage of eggs hatching broiler chickens fell to its lowest level in more than a decade. Officials believe the numbers could be falling off due to new varieties of fast-growing chickens which are overheating or an aging breeding flock. Currently, the poultry industry must produce 750 million new chickens each month to keep pace with demand. (Wall Street Journal)
