My hens hatched eggs for the first time... out of nine eggs she was sitting on, nine hatched (athough I had to do ALL the work for two of them,[other than the tiny break they had made) they are doing great now...). I was wondering what's the earliest time to sex them? I plan on keeping the pullets and having the cockerels for the table (when should they be butchered, since I am asking?) Thanks... I decided to let them hatch since we hadn't gotten any new chicks this year (do to the fact that we got "sexed" hens and two out of five were males!!).
