I am thinking about getting some meat birds and was a a hatchery site reading up on the Jumbo Cornish X Rock. This is a statment that they made. I would like to know why you would do this to a meat bird. "If you want to raise capons, buy males and have them caponized at 2 or 3 weeks of age." And they have them seperated into males and female or straight run. Besides the males grow a little faster, what is the advantage of one sex or the other for meat birds? Can you raise your own from these birds, say keep out 10 pulletts and one roo for bredding the next generation of dinners? Thanks for all the help.
