That looks like it might be a roo. It is a Cornish cross. They are meant to be processed at 8 to 12 weeks. If you don't want to eat them, restrict feed to once a day and free range constantly. They will still have a much shorter life span and will have health problems with their legs, lungs, and heart.

Looks like a Cornish Cross pullet to me.

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!

They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
