    I recently read that people raising chickens are either a "multiplier" or a "breeder" What does that mean? How do you know which one you are?

    Thanks

    Quote:by multiplier they probably most likely mean that they are just multiplying bad or not up to grade birds instead of striving for perfection. A breeder is someone that is working to better their stock. But sometimes it seems like you are running an uphill race
