A general definition of Murphy's law is pretty much if it can happen it usually does. Mostly bad. LOL

My luck has been much different this year. I have just about equal numbers of males and females. One thing I have noticed is that the female line seems to be weaker than the male line. The female line takes longer to hatch and doesn't have quite as good a percentage of chicks either. Once hatched, there is little difference in the vitality of the chicks though.

Now this is the kind of information that we should be posting on here! I'm an old hand but I learn something new all the time by reading posts like these.

I have never tried this before, so I am not sure if this will apply to the old English or not. But ,I will try it this next breeding season and see if it works. I'll keep y'all posted and please let me know if you have tried or can try before I do.

I have tried this on the OEGB and did not have good success. Someone told me that it doesn't work on Bantams. I don't see why it wouldn't and it is very possible I just am not doing it right.
