I learned from a huge thread in the Meat Birds section, started by Kassaundra. Lots of pictures, advice, encouragement, and whatnot. Recently I saw another thread that also has pictures. It's basically surgery to remove the testes. It isn't for everyone.

I am about an hour and half south of Jax down US 17 ... southern Putnam County. I am not willing to sell the few hens/pullets I have - it's a very broody line and that is why I have them along with Silkies. Good luck on your hatch! I have my second batch of eggs in the incubator (and now 9 eggs under a broody Am hen) and am hoping I made all the newbie mistakes on that first hatch. I only got 2 out of 27 eggs, but learned a lot from it. (blog post on troubleshooting the non-hatch)
