Is there an average percentage of hatchlings...like 50% male and 50% female or does a hatch usually favor gobblers?

I'd say the hatch usually favors hens but that's just me guessing

Total complete guess, but with many species, there are slightly more males than females conceived in mammalian and avian populations...partly because of natural mortality.

Now whether a skunk or coon prefers one egg over another I do not know (tongue in cheek). My guess is they actually hatch in nearly equal proportions on a broad scale.

during the fall the sex ratio to me is 90% hens and poults, lol I have trouble finding the toms during the fall season. Got one last year but that's it. I would guess the hatch would be close to 50/50 like most critters.
