what does straight run mean?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm sending email out looking to buy bantam cochins locally, and people keep saying that they are straight run.  What exactly does this mean?

I have 3 horses and 14 chickens as well as a beautiful peahen and 2 ducks

Most bantams are always sold straight run as they are often to small to safely vent sex.
