My fiance & I recently adopted 10 Buttons, we were told they were evenly split...male to female. But the ratio appears to be 7:3. Is it possible to segregate out 3 breeding pairs and have the rest of the males live together? We have our first egg in an incubator, I'm hoping for a girl. But we will see. The hard three to sex are our whites, one is much larger, but makes loud calls, could it be a female? The other two small ones definitely making the mating "whir" attributed to boys. If that is the case we might be 6:4.
These are my first hemipodes, but I have experience with other birds and my mother has a chicken army of her own. :)
