    I set 43 Bobwhite eggs and hatched 35. What's the chances that all of them are roos? From the looks of them they all are is this normal?

    How old are they? The chances of that happening is actually 1 in 8,796,093,022,000. So I wouldn't worry about it at all.

    Fixed it. I did the math for 43 chicks not 35. Still though you have a better chance at winning the lottery over 3 million times than having all the chicks be roosters.

    They are about 8 weeks old. Feathers starting to come in and they all look exactly the same!!!! So maybe I should buy a lottery ticket. LOL

    Yeah, their colors will start to come in when they are between 14 and 18 weeks old, and I know, might as well buy 3 million lottery tickets if they all do end up being roosters! [​IMG]
