    Chicken biz is all new to me. Following are all 11 weeks old from same orpington/d"uccle batch. Who if any are roos. I think the last one is for sure. Let the voting begin.

    Be glad you got 2 pullets. I gave 2 broodies some eggs to hatch. They produced 7 chicks. All 7 were cockerels.

    50/50 is the average gender ratio of a hatch. Yours was close to that.
