Chicken Sexing Tips

Sexing heritage breed chicks upon hatch : Facts and Myths

Can’t you sex your chicks?

Based on our experiences, the ratio of male chicks in our “Unsexed” batches can vary widely, ranging from 0 to 100%. On average, our customers typically receive a ratio of 40-60% male and female chicks, but there have been instances where an entire batch purchased turned out to be all male or all female. Unfortunately, in instances where the entire batch picked up turns out to be all males, we sometimes receive unwarranted blame. As much as we wish we could control the gender outcome, it ultimately depends on nature’s chance and the luck of the draw.

We want to ensure that all our customers fully understand this variability before making a purchase. If you’re not comfortable with this level of uncertainty, we kindly advise against purchasing our “Unsexed” chicks.
