    I've ordered 15 Straight run old English game bantams, and I can only keep around 3 roosters. How many roosters have you ended up with from Cackle? Preferably out of fifteen. Keep this thread going! Invite people you know and share pictures!

    With the breeds that are only sold as Straight Run (like the bantams) I'd say I've gotten a good 50/50 average--that's over a few years, ordering specific breeds straight run or assortments that include straight run. You're taking a risk anytime you order sexed breeds as straight run--then I'd expect more cockerels.

    Not sure if chicks and goslings and ducks are sexed differently, but I have ordered 8 ducks and 4 goslings from cackle and they were spot on, I got them straight run and I ended up with 4 female and 4 male ducks and 2 male and 2 female goslings.
    As far as chicks I have never ordered straight run from them, but sexed pullets they have always been spot on.
