I guess anybody fooled by this should probably do a bit more studying before getting into chicken breeding anyway [;)]
That being said - it certainly does sound like he is trying to bait the simple [}:)]

I have asked a question of sorts and got an answer.

There is no way you can predict the ratio of male/females hatching and no chook has any indicator of being a pullet producer.

OK just to re-hash - the way I understood it last time it was discussed - the markings on the rooster mean that when mated with the correct colored female then all the female off-spring will have the correct coloring for the breed standard - males wont
and no it has nothing to do with the number of female vs male off-spring (especially since gender is not decided by the rooster anyway)

I can't believe how convinced they are.

Maybe we need to tell the rest of the world who breeds layers they need to be breeding these colours obviously!![;)][;)][;)]

Having read the first answer in the Q&A section, all I can say is that I have found, at least amongst horse breeders, that the "in my experience with 100s and 100s of /insert breed/" and "many noted breeders in the days of yore have found that" are concepts that just cannot be educated out of people...the mythology is more important to them than the reality of facts.

Diane-that is so true!

So don't let me get started on all those nutters out there that still think intensively reared chickens are stuffed with artificial hormones!

I might be wrong but in the first picture of chicks I can only see 3 pullets, the other 4 I can see the comb of are probably roosters.
Those white flecks on the male's chest are a serious fault - what an interesting way of dressing this up as something desirable.

I never knew it was the hen that decided the sex of the offspring :o[:I][:0]
Mind you I was talking to a very very well known breeder and poultry show person last year who told me to change my rooster when I complained of getting too many male offspring - don't feel so silly now I've remembered that :D
