Chicken question [moved from Prairie Provinces]

cookerlady | Apr 4, 2012 04:51 PM

Hey chowhounders!
What is the difference between a fryer and a roaster? My understanding is that a roasting chicken (hen) is older, but by only a few days. How old is a fryer? How old is a roaster? And is the age the only difference? Which is best for soup? Which is best for roasting?
Thanks!
