    Now I know that hatching roo to hen ratio can vary but can anyone give a ratio what they think they've hatched?

    As an example about half hens half roos... etc...

    Give your opinions below!

    This is great feedback so far any other more? I asked this of a YouTube and got a snide response so it's nice to see everyone's positive response and votes

    I want to hatch some of my girls eggs in the near future but I'm so afraid I'll have too many roos

    I won't rehome or kept lots of roos and I don't want to cull either

    Thanks!
