I dont get it..2 drops both ALL female!

Hello!
So I have a particular female guppy who drops large batches of fry every month. The two batches I decided to save and try to raise are turning out to be All female! Why is this? She just dropped again, is there anything I can do to balance out the sexing of the fry, or are guppy fry sexes already developed before she drops?

How old are the fry? It can take up to 4 months to know if they could be males

3 month and 2 month... They're already large enough for me to see that they all don't have the gonopodium. Does the gonopodium develop after? Is that why I'm only seeing anal fins on them?

I've read on here they turn into males around the 4 month mark, so you might find its a little early, I'm not sure about the gono... I can't spell it lol sorry

Hmm that's probably it. I hope so! I was really looking forward to raising male guppies
