In market terminology, what is a broiler?

I'm going to take a stab at it and say a broiler is older than a frying chicken,but younger than a roaster.

I hear it mostly as a general term for a meat chicken - a broiler would be a cornish cross or similar type commercial meat chicken vs a layer which would be a leghorn or RedStar or any other commercial laying chicken vs a dual purpose like a Barred Rock or Orpington - your old style chickens.

Young chickens, not over two and one-half pounds in weight and sufficiently soft-meated to be cooked tender by broiling.
