I am going to buy some Cornish X day old chicks in the near future for butchering. I noticed hatcheries offer pullets, roosters, and straight run chicks. The rooster chicks are more expensive than pullets and straight run. Why would this be the case? Is there any difference as far as meat? I would think roosters would be a bit larger. I read a few things concerning caponizing and male butchering chickens. Is this something that needs to be done on Cornish X roosters? Would it be of any advantage to even get roosters? Please give some input on this gender question. I would like to know what other people out there have done and perhaps the reasoning behind their choices. Thank you in advance for information.
