A Question of Gender...

I know that gender is determined by the temperature at which the eggs were incubated (I assume that happens early on??). What are the chances that eggs from the same clutch, incubated together, could produce both males & females?

Both of my 2006 babies (clutch-mates) are males. I found 2 separate clutches in 2007 that I incubated, and also found 2 babies loose that hatched on their own. No idea if these two were clutch-mates or not, but found them about a month apart and they seemed to be different sizes.

I've been trying to observe characteristics in the(2007) babies, but think they're a little young - it was just this year that the 2006 babies showed positive signs. But some are sorta looking like males.
