At long last !

Its about time too !
Over the years, I've really struggled to hatch pullets. Year on year I've hatched way more cockerels than pullets, the ratio has been ridiculously lob sided but this year, at long last my luck has changed !
I've just done a head count and out of the 20 Light Sussex chicks that I've hatched, I have no fewer than 17 pullets and just the three cockerels. I can't believe my luck ! This year is definitely not a complaining year.
And my good luck has also passed over to my Anconas too. 11 pullets to 6 cockerels.

Nice one John  

I think my ratios are about the same.
And yet last year it was definitely a cockerel year
