Straight run means “as hatched”. You will receive males and females and no attempt is made to identify the gender. For example, if you order 3 straight run of a particular breed you could receive 3 males and 0 females, or 3 females and 0 males or a combination of both genders.
The following types of poultry are only offered as straight run: bantam chicks, hatching eggs, heritage turkeys, game birds and guinea fowl. All other types of poultry have the option to specify male, female and straight run in an order.
