The effects of internal quantum number consevation are considered in the statistical chain decay of fireballs. A simple model containing I = 1, G = -1, S = 0 mesons (ground state and excited pions) and I = 1 2, S = 0 baryons (ground state and excited nucleons) is investigated in detail: inclusive distributions, multiplicity distributions and semi-inclusive distributions are determined. The methods are completely general and can be used in more general models with any set of states. As examples, a model with ρ{variant} and π mesons, and nucleons and another one with π and K mesons, and N and Λ baryons are considered.
