When getting 5 out of 5 is not a good thing!

When 5 out of 5 hatched chicks turn out to be boys.   :(

All 5 of my Light Sussex Bantam chicks have turned out to be boys.  The two I have left were a lot less developed than their brothers.  I was still a little unsure until they caught sight of my broody bantam this morning.  They both dashed over to her and strutted their stuff in front of her.  She was not impressed and started to attack them.  When I took her away they started to crow, well one crow and another inbetween a crow and squeeky toy noise!

I am hoping that if they don't get to see her they will stay quiet for a little longer.   :unsure:

Oh no! what are the chances of that happening?

I hatched some Partridge wyandotte bantams a few weeks back for a friend and she ended up with 7 cockerals and 3 females, i thought that ratio was bad enough.

Oh that's rubbish. I have 3 Araucana and 2x Araucana x Welsummer chicks that are 10 weeks old, I'm not overly sure what sex they all are but they all seem to act very boyish to me. I've wanted an Araucana hen for a long time too.  :(

Will keep my fingers crossed that they are girls for you JaK.   ;)

On the bright side they didn't crow this morning.  Have been out most of the day so hope they have been quiet for the neighbours.   :unsure:
