The lastest chicks that have fledged are confusing me greatly...

Three out of the four have very blue nostrils and one has the typical white 'hen' cere...

The father is a Type II Golden Face Sky blue Opaline and the Mum is a sky blue opaline spangle...

But is it possible to get so many boys?

Thanks in advance for your help...

Absolutely :) Even with a 50/50 chance its possible a hen can only ever have boys in a clutch, or girls. Its just the way the dice falls :)

As was stated before you can end up with more of one sex than another. Gald it worked out well for you with more cocks! Cocks make way better pets than hens.

One year my old show partner ended up producing 26 cocks and 3 hens. :eek: NOT good when you are breeding for exhibition it REALLY puts a crimp in your next years breeding program!! She chaned out her lighting system and the next year produced a much higher number of hens to cocks.
