    If they worked the hatcheries would go out of business everybody with a backyard flock would just hatch hens / pullets LOL nobody would be trying to " get rid of the roos" LOL

    When I was pregnant we did the old art of swinging a ring from a thread above the belly, supposedly the magnetic force affects the way it swings. Its purely for fun, and sure to have a 50% chance of being correct. [​IMG]
