No Not any good Cornish at our local actions, but I have gotten some good ones at some national show's from some good breeders. Whites and good ones are just so tough to get a hold of, it can be very frustrating sometime, and even more so when we hatch a ton of chicks and only a few are worth taking the time to grow out. I have raised several different breeds over the years and the LF Cornish have proven to be the toughest test of my pateints. Still hanging in there though.
Everybody can go around and around and get all caught up in genetics and reccesive this and Dominant that and so on and so on, but if you don't know much about your birds, where they come from for sure, and without a doubt their lineage, you won't ever be sure, hence all the issues with color and what folks think they should be getting as opposed to what pop's out of the egg. If you have bred your own stock over a few generations then you can dang skippy be sure, unless your crossing or not paying attention. I have seen this topic of color and genetics get turned upside down and folks get so caught up in the formulations of what's supposed to be what, that if they actually did hatch something they couldn't recognize it if it dropped on their head. select pairs/trios........ breed..... hatch...... look ..... learn...... and pay attention......... that's what makes good breeding birds......... not obsessing of formula's if your not sure what the blood carries in the first place.
Just trying to add some grounded insight instead of speckulation.
I edited out my reply because I it was made in frustration and insulting.
