The Differences between Cockerels, Cocks, Pullets and Layers

0

I know a few people or farmers don’t know (or are confused about) the difference between a cockerel and a cock. Some farmers also find it difficult to figure out the difference between a pullet and layer (Hens). Well, this post would quickly highlight the differences.

The difference between cockerels and cocks lies with their age. Both are male chickens but cockerels are still very young and not sexually matured while cocks are sexually matured. This is all you need to know about cockerels and cocks.

Also, for pullets and layers, both are not the same. Pullets are young female chickens that are not sexually mature and less than 4 months old or but more than 2 months old. Layers or hens are sexually matured chickens that are ready to lay eggs. Point-of-lays could also be called hens or layers since they are sexually matured.

I hope the differences are now clear to you. Happy farming!!!
