I know you guys have probably discussed this before but I didn't see it going right down the list. I hatched some eggs and have 28 babies. I am giving them away to people locally. I have silver in solid and tuxedo, white, red (in various shades from pink to darker), wild color, dark range and tibetan tuxedo and a couple of silver with red mixed together. Anyway, I have been trying to guess genders from their general behavior because of course no-one wants Roosters and I'm thinking that I have mostly Roosters. I've decided to keep 3 and I have to pick tonight before the second person comes to get their set (I've given away 8 already). I wanted to keep the silver tuxedo, a white one and one of the strange silver/red combos. They are 2 weeks old, almost fully feathered except their heads. The only wild color one I already gave away because she had a spotted breast. I've been trying to guess based on their body size. Thinking that the ones that are getting plumper are going to be girls and the skinnier more active ones are going to be boys? I've also noticed that some stand really tall and peep and so I assumed those were going to be boys as well. The question that I had was when I picked out the silver tuxedo and put her in a separate container, s/he went from just kind of sitting around being plump to standing tall and peeping. I want to get better at this. I'm hatching another 20 but those will go back to my friend that has the quail. She was excited that I got silver as she thought she didn't have any more. I think she does, maybe they've just faded really bad since they are outside and get sun a lot. These are photos I took almost a week ago. I'm hoping I don't have mostly roosters but I fear that I may. What is the normal ratio in a hatch? surely I didn't hatch 20 boys.
