New members at the house

A buddy hatched out some chickens for me. They are not sexed so I wanted a dozen and he sent 25. Is the ratio normally 50/50 hens to roosters?Image

Not necessarily. I have hatched them off and had 5-7 stags and 20 or pullets. Then the next time it is the opposite. Just keep the pullets and put the stags in the freezer at 16 to 20 weeks.

So....how did they come out? My last batch was 11 roosters and 7 pullets . It evens out over time. I like fried chicken so works out for me either way. Lol
