Friends, last night I was told something that seemed like nonsense: hens hatch more pullets than incubators do and incubators hatch more cockerels than hens do.

Is it nonsense?
I know baby crocodiles become either male or female depending on the temperature whilst in the egg, maybe it’s something similar?

Good evening folks :frow

I suspect it is...

On the subject of misters, a restaurant in Florida (very humid) has them setup in each of the four corners of their patio with fans. And the patio was a good 10-15* cooler.

Has to be nonsense. Sex is determined at fertilization. That happens before the incubation method is determined.
