Thanks so much! When I bought my first bantams from them years ago they only had straight run, so I'm glad to have this info for future chick purchases. I love silkies, so I wouldn't mind getting them, and the Japanese roos we've had have been so gentle that the only issue I'd have would be the money lost if they didn't turn out to be pullets. I'm so glad all of yours turned out to be female. I used to live in a neighborhood that didn't allow roosters, so I know how important it can be. We were lucky to have a friend who re-homed the 7 roos out of 10 chickens we got in our straight run bantam order. Now we live on a farm, so it isn't as big of an issue. Thanks for all of the great info! I appreciate it a lot.
