I'm sure I know the answer already, but . . . In a batch of chicken eggs, do you generally get approximately equal numbers of male and female chicks? I'd love the answer to be "no, you get far more hens," but I think I know better. I just can't figure out why nature's design would produce so many roos when only a few are needed. And I want to hatch eggs--but I certainly don't need a rooster!
