I was going to incubate some eggs in the spring, but I really do not want a bunch of roosters. Is there any way to incubate the eggs so that I would get more hens?
does temperature of incubator determine sex of chicken?

You can use that method to influence amphibians :-) Want to hatch some alligators?
Been covered a dozen times. Nope. Too high of temps or other incubating problems can end up killing off more pullets than roos so some begin to think things like that impact gender but the gender of each egg is decided by the hen at the time the egg is created. Eggs have a gender before they are even fertilized and coated in a shell. Nothing you do is going to change that.
LOL....my son was just telling me this earlier. We had decided to crank up the bator and I let him choose about 38 eggs to put in and he said " now go get on the internet and see what temperature you need to produce hens." I had to explain to him that this was an impossibility.
