    I get confused over feather sexing as well, I understand it but it doesnt work on all breeds, and who can remember which it does and doesnt!

    fast feathering is a sexlink thing--crossing breeds that make pullets feather at a different rate from cockerels. I really does not work for a breed, which is why it is hard to get, because it is impossible unless you do the correct cross of breeds.

    Thanks Ron. I think I remember now reading that before. I just have to reminded of the things from time to time.

    I'm getting too old. I turned 53 today.

    There is a sexlink thread that lists some of them. I will paste in the information but you should go to the thread--It is amazing!

    I might just have to join this hatch-along now. It seems my hens have decided that fall is the perfect time to go broody.
