I think we need to start a #RooedToo movement.
Nah ... it's that little "angel" on our shoulder. Everybody has one, mine just happens to be one of Murphy's cousins .. y'know, of "Murphy's Law" fame? Don't get me wrong; I'm glad to have him there. I just sometimes wish he didn't have such a twisted sense of humor!
I think you get whatever you don't want. When I want some new roosters I get pullets. When I desperately need hens I get roos. I have the worst luck
I have a group of 12 chicks I'm growing out. They're only 6 weeks but it looks like mostly hens with a few roos to choose from. The tide might be turning...
My bantams from there ended up being large fowl
Oooooh....could you send that tide my way?
The only sexed bantams I've seen at TSC or other feed stores were supposed to be autosexing. The day-olds are just too small to vent sex without doing major internal damage - which is why mast of the major hatcheries sell them straight-run, too. Oh well, I guess the cockerels stand a better chance with us, anyway ...
All my birds this year were straight run. I thought I had almost all male silkies, but ended up being almost all female. Even the guesses I received on backyard chickend had it backwards haha.
Maybe but still a full freezer!!
Based on scientific study done by chickenmadscientist.com Higher incubator temps equals more Roosters. Lower temps equal more pullets. See problem solved!!!
Well not really I kinda just made that up but it sounded good while typing.
All of my silkies except for a couple were rowdy sparring little monsters, many with bigger combs and wattles, 6 out of 7 ended up being girls! I couldn't believe it and they had me fooled until the rooster started breeding them and they started laying.
