    Ok folks..... I'm giving the pendulum a try for sexing my chicks. I have sexed my remaining day 16 eggs and here is what I got....


    Girls - 12 (2 were iffy)
    Boys - 11 (2 were iffy)
    Unknown - 2

    I am wondering if the unknowns are maybe NOT going to hatch.... it went dead still with them [​IMG] I hope not though! [​IMG]

    I will sex them again after they hatch to compare results. And of course, once they are old enough to know for certain I will compare again.

    This should be interesting [​IMG]

    Maybe you can seporate them and raise the "girls" and the "boys" to see what % your skills are at. It'd be interesting to know exactly how to do that. I know people who do, but I've never heard how they figure it out.

    I used a pendulum to "read" their energies to glean some knowledge on what was in them. Or at least that is the plan [​IMG]

    I will most likely just mark them (keeping track as they hatch with camera) but still raise them together...... I only have room for one brooder and one lamp right now [​IMG] I haven't used my pendulums in a couple of years now, so it'll be interesting to see how on or off I am [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes and no [​IMG] Dowsing is done a bit differently, but the idea behind it is the same... using a tool to find, follow or read energies given off by a specific thing... whether water, metals or the sex of a chicken in an egg. If done unbiased and with dedication, I believe it really can be done. We shall see how this goes ....... I'm excited to work with something that is an otherwise "unknown" but yet will yield real and true results as soon as it matures, allowing me to establish success or failure [​IMG] Hoping for success of course [​IMG] [​IMG]
