    And because they produce both eggs and meat billions of male laying birds will not have to be slaughtered at birth each year

    I find this hard to belive i think someone is pulling someone's leg.​

    I think what they are saying is the males will be meat birds...this way when they sex them the males will be used for meat birds instead of being killed outright.A real duel purpose chicken.
