What kind of chicken is this?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am very new here so please excuse any mistakes I will probably make. This is my neighbors chicken, and nobody seems to know what type it is. I was wondering if somebody new. It is about half grown, and doesn't seem as white as it looks in the picture.

Are you asking about the white one? A clearer photo would be helpful, but I'm thinking White Rock or possibly Cornish cross.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Thanks. I will try to get a better picture tonight. And yes I'm asking about the white one.

Can you take another pic, I think the camera is focusing on the wire and is making the chick seem to be out of focus. Thanks

It's a bit hard to tell the breed, I'm guessing it's either a Cornish X or white rock, or  maybe even a mixed breed. A better picture would be really helpful though.

Breeds I raise: Easter Eggers, Naked Necks, PROJECT white d'Uccles, Mille fleur d'Uccles, RI reds, Barred PR's, Assorted Cochins, GLW's, Sexlinks, Mutts, and one Lavender Orpington!

Turkeys: Bourbon Red ~ Standard Bronze

Ducks: Blue ripple and black Muscovys

Looks just like my cornish cross did. My cornish had a few black tips on a few feathers. She was part of a mix batch and grew very very fast. I called her big bird bc she was twice the size of everyone else. My cornish just died this Saturday after a year and two months. You should butcher her at 6-8 weeks otherwise she will become very fatty and be a very messy time consuming chicken. We found out too late for ours and I couldnt bare to cull her at that point.

This picture isn't much better. There are no black marks on the feathers.

Cornish Cross seems to be the consensus. I will have to tell my neighbors that they have meat birds and not egg birds.
