    Straight run simply means that you could have a mix of males and females. Straight runs aren't separated by males or females. You stand a chance of getting one, the other or both.

    Edited because I forgot to say WELCOME TO BYC!!! We are so happy to have you as part of our family.

    Straight run means mixed boys and girls. If you want only females, choose "pullets".
