    Happy New Year!! I was wondering if anyone has heard of any study involving temperature of incubation and resulting sex of poultry. The reason I ask is I know alligator eggs may all be only one sex or another, depending on the temperature. I just thought it would be interesting if there was a way to do this with poultry. Just a thought.

    I had someone tell me they hatched all hens by the level of humidity, but cannot remember now what that was.
