    If I can get a hold of the spray vita stuff mentioned earlier I was thinking to do just such an experiment.

    oh thinking of sprays and dips..... This is pretty cool too... There is a patent out for a dip for commercial hatcheries to produce hormones through the shell to make certain sexes, another words the liquid 'carried sex-influencing material is taken up in the pores of the shell of the egg without other invasion.

    I think they are doing something similar over in Europe as well currently.

    I did not look too long so it is easy to miss stuff but it looks like they can only make Cockerels from pullets at day 3 of incubation. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1439-0272.1992.tb02599.x/abstract

    Another article said spontaneous gender change goes from female to male--not the other way because of the make up of males and females. That article said that they do not fully become males--can't fertilize eggs so you get a crowing hen that is sterile.
