If this is the wrong forum to post this question in, I apologize in advance. I have been looking locally for Buff Orpingtons with no luck. In fact, the only person/place where I can get a small number of chicks is the local feed stores and when I call them to ask what they have, all I get is 'straight-run' In my limited (but growing ) chicken knowledge, I thought straight-run meant male+female but it seems like they are referring to mixed breeds as well. For a first-time chickener, would you recommend buying some of these 'straight-run' and then trying to locally sell or give-away the breeds/sexes I don't want to keep? Thanks!
