I don't know what controls the ratio in chickens but I saw somewhere that, with quail, too many males would cause the hens to lay female eggs.
I have that problem and my last 2 hatches have been all female.
I'm going to try again soon so we will see what happens.

I've currently got 4 chicks, and although they are difficult breeds to sex, I've got an incling that I have 3 Roos and 1 hen. I've read somewhere that the percentage rates to hatch Roos are 55%
