If this is on the wrong forum, please forgive. I didn't know where to put it. Is there a site around anywhere that lists approximate percentages of male vs. female on hatched chicks? I read on the web that studies with normal Pekin ducks revealed that usually about 47 percent were drakes. In general and as an average, if ordering a group of chicks of a specific breed, if I bought a dozen chicks, how many roos would I expect to get? Most of the prices I've seen where sexed chicks are available, it would be cheaper to order a dozen or so straight run than 4 or 5 pullets and 1 roo. Plus if I only had one roo, I guarantee he'd be the first one that bit the dust. Any ideas based on your experience?
