    sory if this question sound stupid but I am new to the chicken world. When ordering chicks what do they mean by "STRAIGHT RUN"? Are there any other terms I need to know?

    Straight run means they are not sexed, you could get any mix of girls and boys.

    Straight run means they don't sex the birds. You get whatever you get.

    Pullets would be only hens.

    Cockerels would be only roosters.
