    I was looking for chicken hatching eggs on craigslist and came across this ad and thought I would just share it with yall because to me it is kind of funny. I cant believe this person would actually try to tell some one they can SELECT eggs that will either hatch as male or female.

    So, they are doing amniocenteses on the albumin of each egg to determine what sex chromosomes are present? [​IMG]

    Are you for real.I've never heard of that,But I'd say that it's possible.My wife and her sisters can tell what sex a child is going to be before it is born by bthe way that a woman carries it and most of the time they are right.[​IMG]:weee

    I'm not saying it's impossible.
    It's just about 99.9999999999% impossible. I even have trouble telling a Jaerhon egg from an Ancona, Minorca or Leghorn.
    If I could tell the sex of an egg I could make a lot more money.
    Sell boy eggs for food.
    Sell girl eggs for hatching.
    Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

    I wish we could tell the sex of chickens before they hatch, it should would make things easier. [​IMG]
