    A Meal Maker will be a female layer if most of your order consists of female layers with the promise that you'll donate her eggs. If you order meat birds, you will get an extra meat bird to donate after you butcher. No worries of getting a rooster, that's not in the cards if you order one of these chicks! It's simply a similar chick to what you have already ordered.

    I think the Meal Maker chick varies, probably depending on what they have extra of. Mine was what they call a Golden Buff, basically a production red. She was the first of 17 pullets to lay and gives me a at least 6 big brown eggs a week. She's also top hen in the flock.
