How many has heard or tried this? I have saw it done and it is always right:
Take a paper clip and tie it on the end of a piece of feed bag string and hold it about 4 inches over the birds tail end and if it goes in a circle it is a female, if it goes back and forth it is a male. Correction, I meant to say, hold the string 4 inches from the clip over the bird, you should touch the bird with the paper clip at the end of the string and lift it about a half an inch real steady and after perhaps 20 to 30 seconds you will see it move in a circle for female and back and forth for male. Try it on a woman or a man around the wrist; you'll see it works on everything, dogs and all, even a freshly laid egg.

Gotta say that this is a new one on me :!: :!: :!: :eek:
In today's crazy world, it's good to know there is a certain way to determine the sex of human or animal. First impressions are definately not absolute anymore. :roll:

I've heard of it. Never tried it though. Work for a egg farmer in high school and he told me about it.

Poultry is something that I've always wanted to take a try at but have never been in the proper setup to do so - one day when I live on the farm or at least a little closer I will give it a go. Things like this make it all the more interesting to me. Thanks for sharing Caseman.
