But what really are the odds of this happening? I've had 13 pure mille fleur d'uccles chicks hatch here since November of last year. One of these died as a chick, and of the remaining 12 there are 6 males and 6 females?? Every single hatch has been equal numbers of boys and girls?!? How odd is this? ETA: I've had 4 hatches. The one that died was in the first hatch, leaving 1 pair; second hatch was 6 chicks=3 pairs; third hatch was 2 chicks=1 pair; fourth hatch also 2 chicks=1 pair.
