There's no way to determine what gender chick will hatch out of a given egg. It's all luck of draw, unfortunately.

There are several theories that folks experiment with - from the shape of the egg to incubation conditions (specifically temperature), etc.  There is a thread here you might enjoy reading and trying out: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/969282/sexing-eggs

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Several of us are experimenting with the egg shape theory.  I've increased my pullet % from 40 - 60% using this method.  You might want to check out my thread.  http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/958517/nutrition-and-gender-and-inducing-broodiness
