    The main tip is to make sure the mother has the dominant slow-feathering gene and the father is pure for the recessive fast-feathering gene. Unless the parents are set up correctly genetically it simply will not work.

    Once you meet that basic criteria there are several photos and videos online that show you what to look for. If the parents are not set up correctly genetically, there are no tips to make it easier as it simply will not work.
