    It means they aren't sexed, could be male and could be female.

    means the pullets and cockerels are not separated by sex, just dumped in all together

    It means if you pick out your own, you will invariably get exactly the sex you don't want. [​IMG]

    It means the chicks aren't sexed, just boys and girls together. Not the way you want to go unless you are prepared for about half of them to be roosters. If you want girls, buy pullets and then you'll only have a 10% chance of getting a boy.

    It means run away in a straight line. Because what EbonyKawai said is
    exactly the case.
