My first hatch...5 roos and 2 ladies
Ah, jeesh. I have eggs in the 'bator right now and am fearful of the same thing. My indulgent hubby has drawn the line at roosters so...just my luck I'll get all roos. Of course I could consider that a failed hatch and then have to try again...That's one of the rules of chicken math, I think.
But if memory serves me, Roos aren't chickens. They are cash! Enough to get more eggs going.
Are you related to me??? I am known as the roo queen
Yup! we are all one big happy family.
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< See my title? There's a very good reason for that.....
That 50/50 gender split thing only works when you're dealing with large numbers. The smaller the number the more off it can be.
My 4-H club leader raises Border Collies. Just got a new stud dog not so long ago and he's sired two litters so far. There were a total of fourteen pups. Thirteen of them were males!
Been there, done that, Every time
I'm the opposite... I happen to love getting roos. Especially in the longcrower and longtail breeds. I need to paint the inside of my incubators blue for those guys. lol!
Quote:I love roosters, too, but I don't have nearly enough hens for them all. I usually rehome them on Craig's List, but I recently got permission from the local TSC to sell them from their parking lot.
