I got 12 straight run SLW from the TSC the 1st part of April. The 1st day I got 6, then thinking that most would be cockrels I went back the next day and got 6 more so I would have a chance of at least a few pullets. Well, they are now almost 2 months old and I'm pretty sure that all but 3, maybe 4 are pullets. How's that for luck? I know the are "just" hatchery birds, but they are getting very pretty with very nice lacing, and they are all so sweet and friendly. I'm really very happy with them.

I totally feel your pain! I too have experienced the straight-run blues.


If I bought in pairs of each breed, one was always a Rooster. If I bought four, two were Roosters. It was so annoying; and one of the feed store staff claimed that the 'Ameraucanas' (Which were Easter Eggers, incorrectly labeled), had a '90% chance of being a Pullet'. Well, it was still 50/50 for me. I don't even know why the chances would supposedly be better with the EEs as opposed to the other breeds.

We also took our chances at TSC out of a tank labeled "Amerucauna straight run" and got all pullets.
