this might help in making sure your chicks were sexed right?
Thank you for submitting that. My boys love watching dirty jobs and last night when they were watching it I told them to let me know if the chick sexing episode comes on again. I had seen it before and wanted to see it again after seeing the question posted here about sexing the chicks.
very cool -- thanks for sending that. my son was horrified to see how rough they were with the babies! ;-)
My family and I also saw an episode on I think, How its Made and the workers were just tossing them in the separate chutes like so many pieces of garbage. I suppose it is hard to be gentle when you have this assmbly line of yellow fuzzballs coming at you at 90 miles an hour but I thought it was a little disheartening. erinM.
I think it shows you how tough the chicks really are. Sometimes we feel like they are so fragile...but for them to have survived in the wild and under domestication before brooders and chick starter and vaccines, etc. it shows the little buggers are pretty tough.
I don't know, it sure makes me think twice about ordering from a commercial hatchery again... And it may explain why 2 of mine were dead on arrival and another died shortly thereafter.
