    I just ordered all st. run of these breeds from Ideal. What has your experience been with sexes? More males, more females, good mix?

    St. Run Silkie assortments(10) (wondering what colors I could get and sex)
    St. Run Frizzles(10) (again color and sex)
    St. Run EE (6)
    St. Run Old English (6)
    St. Run Golden Phoenix (6)
    St. Run Cuckoo Maran (10)

    I know thats a lot of chicks, but I am sharing with a friend we are splitting them up. I have 2 large coops also with 4 different rooms.

    I've only made one straight run order ever, and it was from Ideal. I ordered 10 bantam cochins, and got 5 cockerels, 5 pullets.

    Plus 15 packing peanuts, all males, but one died in shipping. Lots of boys in that box [​IMG].

    Last year I ordered 12 straight run Dominique chicks from Ideal. I got 6 males and 6 females. They also sent me 9 males for warmth, one of them turned out to be a pullet.
