I just wanted to add that I can relate to Lilwanis about too many Roos and too few pullets. Anyone else experience this with birchen marans? Out of 9 hatchlings only two so far look to be female... What's up with that? Lol. I hope I get at least one more! Also, if you breed a blue splash hen to a blue birchen, I suppose you'd get the standard 50% blue, 25% black, and 25% splash.. What does a splash birchen look like? Anyone have pics?
