Hi im currently hatching my first quails (it coming up to day 19 and they still hiding in eggs lol)
i was just wondering what is the adverage gender of the Japanese quail
Eg assuming 100% hatch and live to sex size
from a batch of 24 you normally end up with x males and y females (like you personally hatched 24 and on average you got 8 males out 24 when ever you hatched 24)

Hello Daniel and welcome to BYC! It's great to have you here.

It has always appeared to me to be an even distribution between male and female, with the expected deviation, of course.

My last quail hatch was 33 chicks and I ended up with 15 male and 18 female. But there have been other times when there were a few more males than females.
