Re: Round Two Chicks

12 out of 19 locked down. 1 died after external pip, 1 died after internal pip, 5 were goners well before day 14 - but it's hard for me to tell with brown eggs, so I left them in just in case.

Re: Round Two Chicks

Not a terrible ratio!  Could be worse! Hope you got some good dudes there! I think the ones that end up best are just more yellow-looking overall when young!

Re: Round Two Chicks

Very cute looking birds!! Is 6 and 6 a "typical" ratio of an EO hatch, or is it more random?


My wife and I are researching to begin our chicken adventure in 2012. We have 2 acres of property located just outside of the city. Bees are also a desire in 2012 as well and we have multiple flower gardens to keep them entertained. Long-term dream is to have a goat, goose and maybe even a llama - only because my wife won't let me have a bison. Owners of 6 cats - 1 male and 5 female.

Re: Round Two Chicks

It's supposed to be 50:50 in theory, but most chickens hatch slightly more roos than hens, not sure why.  We got more females than males this year with EOs, out of 15 total, 6 were male and 9 female.  My 13 chanteclers were 9 females, 4 males! Come to think of it we usually get more females in EOs any year!  Maybe this year will be a rooster year :nervous: 

I heard the older a rooster gets, the greater proportion of males in his offspring.  It may be an old wives tale, but I keep hearing it! :huh:

Re: Round Two Chicks

Well Claire - you need to make sure you get all the young ones layin' to get a good number of EO pullet culls for a certain someone. :whistle:

Re: Round Two Chicks

No pictures [insert big sad eyes slowly blinking here].

Just kidding! I know how time consuming it is to take and post :pics:

I dumped photobucket and switched to picasa web albums... cut my uploads to 1/4 of the time. And we have sloooow connections here. That helped a lot. :pics:

That's a good tip. We have slow connection too. I'll have to switch.

Re: Round Two Chicks

I find photobucket very slow too.  Just I know where all my hundreds (thousands?) of pics are on it!  Might be worth a try anyway. :thumbs:
