    Hello, I just got 14 chicks before thanksgiving. A straight run. I have been learning as I go and I have really enjoyed it.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you joined our group.

    Good luck with your straight run chicks... people always seem to need it! I've yet to get a straight run or home hatched bunch that wasn't 75/25 roosters to hens. Maybe you will get lucky. What breeds do you have?

    Queen Misha is right. That's one way hatcheries get to dump cockerels get paid for it, and still use them as warmers for others in the order. Win-win situations for them. Not so for
    the person who ordered.
