    Hi, I'm sending email out looking to buy bantam cochins locally, and people keep saying that they are straight run. What exactly does this mean?

    Quote:no, usually Straight run chicks are cheaper than ones that are already sexed.

    Quote:Most bantams are always sold straight run as they are often to small to safely vent sex.
