When I ordered chicks before, I always got just pullets. In my last order, I had to get straight run and ended up with a few male birds. I parted ways with a couple of the males, but did keep one in the coop. Since then, my stories of my birds have become much more interesting. Just the other day I noted: I have the biggest male bird I have ever seen. My male bird is bigger than anyone else's male bird. My male bird can do amazing things. My male bird can even fly. My male bird is up at dawn and always raring to go.
