    On 100 chickens it should do as well as 50/50. There is nothing magnetic about a chicken. There is no good scientific reason that a magnet can detect sex. But if you want to makr one you need nylon thred snd a rare earth magnet. Look up preganancy pendilums (spelling) they will tell you wich way inficates male vs femsle. Or you could get a plumb wieght and test it on your known males and females and then try the chicks. But on known sex birds it should be 100% accurate if it works at all.

    ok... My first thought is, "Why aren't the hatcheries using these instead of culling a good number of roos at hatch... My second though is, I love the way the person puts, "but sometimes there is a small few that these dont work for.".... I'd be willing to bet the small amount it don't work on will be the eggs of the highest bidder... [​IMG] Anything to make a buck!!

    I'm asking because my mom wants me to try it out...she said it might be better if I hatched just female chicks. [​IMG]

    Wow... He really is trying to make a buck!!! The negative comments say it's just a magnet on a ribbon.. well, if you look at the picture closely, that's exactly what it is... I magnet at the end of a ribbon with a bead at the other end... OMG!!!!! Save your $$.. If you want to see if it works, go get a magnet off the fridge and glue a string to it....

    See theres one thing that bothers me about the feedback. Ok So you recieve the Egg sexer, and you put your feedback for example I say "awesome I got it A+++" but they finally your chicks hatch or whatever and you use it and it does not work in the long run, and you already put your feedback, So you cant double your feedback (that im aware of) Im not very good at ebay and dont know a lot.
