tend to stubbornly line up along the outside of the tractor. After the cocks
are all killed off, the pullets not only are very adventurous but also much
better behaved, and will go in on their own. Sorry for the sexist tone, but
that is what I have observed, without looking hard.<o:p></o:p></span></font></p>
