    I have been looking at pricing in my area and around others for Cornish X broilers.

    What is the difference between the Pullet, Straight Run or Cockerels? I would assume that Pullet is the female, Straight Run is whatever they grab you get and Cockerels are all males.

    If they are what I just listed then why the big price difference between them?
    Pullet - $0.89
    StRn - $0.95
    Cock - $1.06

    And what do most people get?

    Quote:Cock are worth more since they grow faster and larger than pullets, that is why there is a premium on them as chicks.
