New EO babies

I had 21 new EO babies hatch July 11th.  The eggs came from Flat Rock Farm  Thanks Paula.  All chickies are in good shape and doing well.  I sure hope there are some girls in there!

Re: New EO babies

Don't you just want to squeeze them!  The ones with the black on their heads are Michael's kids - there are 9.  The others are Redbud's kids - 12 of them.  I love their little orange feet and beaks.

Re: New EO babies

1 week update.  Not a lot of changes just wing feathers, but still cute.  I suspect at least 12 boys.  Oh no!  I'd love to be wrong about that.

Re: New EO babies

My shipped eggs this year 3 pullets, 11 cockerels...it never fails! 12 boys still leaves 9 girls, it could be worse!

Re: New EO babies

So, when you hatch eggs from your own birds do you get more girls?

Re: New EO babies

Yes, hatches of my own eggs are closer to 50:50, perhaps slightly higher than 50% pullets on average. 

Are you thinking maybe pullets can't handle the stress of shipping as well as cockerels?? I wonder if there is any statistical evidence of that...

Re: New EO babies

It depends on the hatch rate you are getting on shipped eggs. The higher the hatch rate the closer to 50% males to females you should get.

Some hens lay more of one gender or the other.
