    Some chicken's are sexed at day 1.. they are hatched & are different colors. . Greenfire Farms has some.. bielefelder's are just one. They are dual purpose & great egg layer's.

    I've been experimenting with that, and am convinced that i've increased my pullet ratio by 20%. Sounds totally stupid, preposterous, and superstitious. But, I can't argue with 67% pullets for the last 3 hatches, compared with 40% pullets for the previous 2 hatches. And, yeah, I keep hatching more, just to keep testing the theory!

    That's awesome. I'd love to hear some details when you feel like your theory is holding up!

    Oh yes, I know there are several sex-link breeds. I have golden comets which are sex-links, and the new sebrights that are in my incubator are also! (oh, now I have to go look that up... I know the silver is sex-linked, but I forgot if the gold is.. haha)
