    Hello, JenEric Farms [​IMG] you can't tell from an egg [​IMG] the chick has to hatch first then in a few weeks you can tell if it's a hen or roo. It's like asking someone pregnant if they're having a girl/boy just by the bump [​IMG]

    I've been reading up on the old wives tale thing.. The old timers say that the rounder eggs will hatch out females, so I say girl!

    There's an old wives tale about sexing egg by the shape. But some friends of mine tried out this theory with 84 eggs this spring. They hatched out 50/50 roosters/pullets. [​IMG]

    Yeah, just like that old wives tale that the gender of a baby can be determined by the shape of the baby bump [​IMG]
