July 1971
An image from Wesley Fishel's photograph collection of a young person holding a basket of eggs and many chicken cages in the background. The label on the photograph reads, "Income-producing projects under the Village Self-Development program, like this poultry farm in Gia Dinh, now are financed on a loan instead of a grant basis. (TCB-097 Photo Eleven, July 1971.)"
September 1971
An image from Wesley Fishel's photograph collection of a man standing in a large open-air chicken coop, holding eggs in his hands. The label on the photograph reads, "Increasing protein production is an important goal of Vietnam's new five-year agricultural development plan. The first stage of the program, ending in December 1971, should see a 15 percent increase in poultry stocks. These hens are the offspring of hybrids imported from the United States, Japan, and the Philippines. Vietnam now has 50 hatcheries producing 150,000 day-old chicks per week. (TCB-098 Photo Six, September 1971.)"
