    I got this from a friend in an e-mail. I just thought it was pretty interesting. I do feel bad that the chicks are rolled around so much though! LOL

    That sexing method only works on some breeds, not all, and it must be done at that time, not later. I laughed at how they implied that fertile eggs are not for eating. I also watched another video that was off to the right of the screen about eggs that actually said that. [​IMG]
