Any possible way? Cornish Cross chicks vs White Leghorn chicks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I got my McMurray order this morning, and everything was mixed. There are 4 Leghorn chicks in here, then 26 Cornish X. I know it will be very obvious in a week or two, but I have a lady who wanted two of the Leghorn chicks. I only realised after I placed the order. They all look the same to me. 

 

 

I can take a better picture if there is any hope at all.

You may have to wait a few days to be able to see any size difference. You won't have to wait weeks, the Cornish X will be much larger in just a few days.

X2 on junebuggena's post; the Cornish X will grow much more rapidly than the White Leghorns and their legs will be much thicker.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
