    My hen hatched 8 chicks yesterday im trying to think positive because if any are roos we got to find them new homes because i already have 3 roos has anyone ever had all hens hatch out?
  2. no, I would say the odds of all eight being hens are pretty slim. My experience is that they are usually half and half. Probably not unheard of but silm, good luck:D

    If I did the math right you will have all females or all males one out of every 156 times. The chances of only all females is even longer. Good luck.
