hatch sexes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok... I've looked and can't find anything...

What are the chances of having a hatch of all one gender?

I have a mixed flock and just hatched out 15 chicks.

I've been told I May not be able to feather sex with barnyard mixes but I find it curious that only 1 out of the clutch seems to be feathering out like a pullet. At 6 days old this one already has decent growth on the wings and some tail feathers starting

Since the natural hatch ratio of pullets to cockerels is 50%, or some say 2:3, It wouldn't be very likely you'd have an all-cockerels hatch; even less likely to have an all-pullets hatch. You can only feather-sex with specific breeds bred for feather-sexing. ---Come join us!
