Dances with Chickens
- Oct 12, 2009
Hey all and good evening! I heard the strangest thing tonight at work. One of my regulars is from Hawaii and used to host cock fights when she lived out there. I guess it's a big thing out there. Not so much here that I'm aware of and I personally wouldn't condone it but I digress. Anywho, I mentioned tonight that 3 of the 8 EE's I got recently ended up being roos. After this she mentioned that the way they sex them out there after 3 weeks if they haven't been sexed yet is by holding them by their heads and if the legs shoot straight down they are going to be a roo and if they pull their legs up and curl them into their body it's a pullet. She assured to me that this didn't hurt them. Has anyone ever heard of this? I wouldn't even know where to start with doing a search on this but I'm interested to know if this is common practice in some places.
