Or you could do like me, where you order both females and males of a breed, knowing the cockerels will go nicely in your freezer about the time the pullets start to lay. I have found by doing this that the nursery NEVER sends me cockerels by mistake, as happens if I order pullets only. Very strange, I always get exactly what I order. (I do separate the genders at about ten weeks.) I have also ordered pullets of one breed and cockerels of another with good results.
