    Hi! I am incubating two eggs right now and they are on day 19. Is there any possibility that I will get two girls?? I am pretty sure that there is a slim chance but has it happened before?

    there is always the possibility but, you can't tell sex at birth so it can be awhile to see any clues.

    [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Yes, there is a chance that both will be pullets, but there is just as much a chance that both will be cockerels, or there will be one of each.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. You may get two pullets, or not. I usually get about 50/50 when incubating eggs. One hatch of three I got two cockerels and one pullet. Another hatch, I got three cockerels and 6 pullets.

    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Good luck in your hatch, like everyone said above, each chick has a 50/50 shot at being a being a boy or girl, hope you get lucky and have two girls.
