From pages of the Crescent City American, November of 1931.
Male birds running with the poultry flock will keep eggs fertile, but the fertile eggs will not keep. The hens will lay just as many eggs if there are no male birds running around. Excepting in cases where high-priced male birds have been purchased to use this past season in the flock, it will be cheaper to dispose of all of the male birds than to feed them until the next breeding season. One of the best ways to handle them is to just can them.
