one of my favorite girls is blossoming into... a beautiful boy
Probably going to do a test mating with him over my little Marauder girl.
I ended up with so many boys I had to re-home a couple of them that I was not going to breed from. At this point I am hoping I have at least 2 girls out of the 11.
Argh, I am sorry about so many boys! I am going to try and grow out the chicks I have hatched over the last few weeks, I will let you know if I end up with extra pullets. I wish there was an easier way to tell. I sold quite a few chicks to a couple families in our 4-H group - I don't think one of them ended up being a cockerel, I couldn't believe it!
I let a silkie hatch some eggs last winter and she hatched 11 babies. I raised them and ended up with 11 boys and 1 girl lol. It happens sometimes sadly. Lucky 4-H families
