    Even though I don't eat any of my chickens, I am supportive of peeps that raise their own or buy straight run and eat the cockerels when still young and tender. Economically, it is not supposed to make sense, compared to raising broilers. I think it is much worse of Idea to eliminate baby chicks just because they are not hens at say 3 days old. I believe they were intended to be food for us. I know, unless they are broilers, they will be slightly smaller/thinner/leaner.
