I've never raised chickens before but I'm in the process of building a coop and have a question about ordering chicks from a hatchery. I'm thinking of ordering 15 chicks, a combination of several breeds. I've read on this site that sexing is not an exact science, other than sex-linked chicks. I am ordering some red star chicks as one of the breeds and was thinking about selecting 1 red star male as I would like to have a rooster. My question is if that's really necessary since besides the red stars, there will be 11 other chicks that will "supposedly" be female? Does paying a little extra per chick (for females) really pay off, or am I likely to get a male out of this bunch as well?
