Birthdays are counter intuitive: the odds of two people in a group of 23 sharing the same birthday are better than 50-50 ... Birthday paradox[^]
I've forgotten most the the statistics I used to know, but I'd say a very similar method would apply to leap kids.

And birthdays aren't evenly distributed (although the distribution does vary depending on culture: Western "likely to conceive" days are different from Chinese ones). In the northern hemisphere for example, you get more children conceived between October and January (as it's cold and wet outside ...) to give more birthdays between July and October.
