    Those are what i hatched successfully out of 40 i only have 13 boys.. not bad much better then 50%....

    i tried out the old wives tale with the pointed eggs being male and the round/oval eggs being female... I had 15 pointed eggs in but only 13 hatched.... and i have 13 boys so i think its true.

    Interesting I never heard this. I will have to try it on my buff brahmas hatching this weekend.
