    Those are always out there, another old wives tale. If any of those things worked, hatcheries would not have thousands upon thousands of male chicks to dispose of every year. You have the long egg vs the round egg, the "hold them by the head and see what they do with their legs" bit, etc, etc. Ebay is full of stuff like the needle on a string, magnetic sexer, etc. There will always be someone who says they work. A quarter is a fine sexer-flip it and you'll have a 50% success rate! [​IMG] The "wait and see" method works 100% of the time, though. [​IMG]
