Hello from Nebraska!

Hello! I am joining for resources as we have just got 2 straight run chicks from Orshelins. Waiting to see how they mature. I am so glad to find so much knowledge in one place. I have found my readings on here to be very helpful!

Straight runs often are more than a 50% chance of drawing a roo - hope they will both be pullets  :fl  Assuming that was your expectation.

 

But in case they are not, do start planning on whether you will keep them or need to rehome.

Thank you for the info! Yes, we were hoping for 2 pullets but I have lined up a trade with a friend if they end up being cockerels.

Hope they are pullets, IMO planning for the trade may give you better luck in both being gals ;)

Good deal otherwise it can be an ordeal trying to rehome cockerels.    Actually 3 or 4 chicks is better, if you lose a couple it can be difficult to  integrate new chicks with established ones, especially after they have set pecking order.
