    Welcome to BYC. If there was a way for gender control, every nursery/breeder would be utilizing it.

    Everyone wishes they could have much better odds of getting pullets instead of cockerels.

    If the knowledge and where -with -all -came to be, someone would be incredibly wealthy for developing the solution.
