Thank you very much, Michelle

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  John Speese: Pullets are young (not sexually mature) hens, cockerels are young roosters, grower ration is what is fed to chicks until they are mature, then they are switched to layer ration.

  -> Thanks. I had just realized that pullets are the young hens and cockerels the young roosters. I have added a note to that effect. Is there any way to refer to both, besides young chickens?
