EO breeders is this a coincidence?

Today I decided to sex my first two hatches. I had already noticed that Prancer had produced more Gorria chicks than any other rooster I have had. By the time I was done every Gorria chick was female and every Marraduna chick is male (I think) 14 female & and 19 male. Has anyone else ever had this happen?

So u leave me hanging, lol  .... :surfing:   I did follow some of the genetic stuff but this seems too odd, for all the females to be one variety and all the males another.

Re: EO breeders is this a coincidence?

I replied on Ace for you too.  Are you sure you have gorria?  The marraduna pullets are sometimes hard to see the barring.   If you see the nice barring on a chick you know it's a cockerel! But if you do have gorria in in your flock and you cross a marraduna to a gorria you will get heterozygous barred males and 50% gorria and 50% marraduna females.
