    So far i have two barred rock roosters hatched....and i can see another one with the pip hole and one egg i think it died during the pip process anyway im glad so far 2 have hatched but if they live i will have 6 barred rock baby roosters! i dont need that many and my mom said we might have to put an ad in the paper to get rid of them i mean so far i only have 1 red sex link hen chick and she says we will need to change out the roosters every month to see who gives more hens then roosters cause of the whole y and x chromosomes

    Male birds have two Z chromosomes and female birds have a Z and a W chromosome, such as in human females have two X chromosomes and males have a X and a Y chromosome. In humans, the males determines the sex of a child from the X and Y chromosomes as the female passes on the X chromosome and the male either an X or Y which determines what sex the child will be. In birds The males pass on the Z chromosome and the female passes on either a Z or W which determines what sex a chick will be.
