    Does anyone know what "Heavy Breed Cockerels (mixed breeds)" are ? While most chicks are selling for $1.95 each, the hatchery is offering the above for 15@$7.49. I don't know if they are meat birds or layers or if they would include roosters.

    I believe it would be all *heavy* breeds, or larger fowl. Seeing as it's a package deal of cockerels, they would all be roosters-no pullets. That's probably why they are so much cheaper.

    They are all roosters, ostensibly for eating. That's why they're cheap. Could have just as well been called "The Frying Pan Special".
