    Depends on the buyer usually.

    Well I would probably say dual purpose, because if you are breeding you need to do something with all the roosters you hatch.. (like meat)

    I think that completely depends on what the person is looking for.

    PS... If you are breeding sex-links, it wont work..
    You wont get a sex-link if you breed 2 sex-links together.
    (At least thats what I have read)
