I know this sounds weird, but my wife tried the pendulum sexing thing on some eggs we were hatching. I know it is in no way scientific, but she thinks she has the touch since her grandmother is some kind of witch and never gets it wrong with a pendulum - just kidding her grandmother is just a little witchy, she is OK Anyway, she put together a spreadsheet of the eggs and the supposed expected sex of each as an experiment. We hatched a mixed lot of 10 eggs so identifying the chicks/birds would be easier. We bought the eggs from a BYCer and they were nice enough to label them as to the breed/color. They hatched yesterday, I noticed that the 4 splash bantam cochins (easy to tell which they were, since we only set those 4 bantam eggs). All 4 were as doing really well and are spunky. 2 of these my wife marked as male and 2 as female from her little pendulum thingy. I noticed that 2 of the 4 are gray, and the other 2 are yellow with little gray spots. Could this be a sex linked trait (assuming my wife's pendulum is accurate, and I know that's a big if - I am not convinced it works). Anybody have any thoughts?
