    Re: Hatch Rate Question

    Its always something in this game. U want stags? You get pullets. U want pullets? U get stags. U like a particular stag. Hes dead within a week.
    Ive gotten more stags one year and the next ive gotten more pullets with the same brood pens. Go figure.
    Mother nature has a reason for what it does. Id just breed more to compensate.
    Ive located a great producing hen For stags this year. . I got nothing but pullets from her this year.

    The sex of the chick will be decided before the egg is laid and after it's laid there is nothing anyone can do to change that.

    I've read where if the temp drops around 3 days before hatching males will turn female not all hens eggs but some.

    i agree with you as far as science goes but ive tested this theory of mine every way i know. ill get some video and document the next hatch to show you guys what i mean. ill turn some less and some more and it happens every time i do it. more turns more pullets. less turns more roosters
