    If there was nobody would ever hatch out roosters unless they really just needed a roo...it is rolling the dice.

    Lots of mythology and folks who absolutely swear the shape denotes sex.

    But, as said above, if it were so, the hatcheries would avoid the males altogether for the layer industry and the females in the broiler industry. These folks support an industry in the billions of dollars. Enough said.
