The female determines the quantity and the male the sex, but out of personal experience, you have a one in 60 chance. We don't have any twins on eiter side and I have twin girls. The chances of having identical twins is better if you have twins in your family and even better if your mother and/or father is one of identical twins. Fraternal twins, anyone can have!
