Cornish Rock or White Leghorn?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

The feed store we purchased from couldn't tell us which were leghorns or cornish because they were put in the same bin, so they just picked out two for us.  Can anyone give me a guess on what we have? They are 2 weeks old. They are both much bigger than the red pullets we got so I would guess both cornish?  I noticed their wings are much different from each others though. Does this make a difference? Thanks for helping a newbie! (Our red pullets are pictured by them and are supposedly the same age.)

Leghorns are going to be smaller than similar age chicks, CX are going to be larger. If your chicks are larger than red chicks of the same age they're Cornish cross.

Thanks for your responses! I am really hoping the feed store was unsure of ages because all the leghorns and cornish were bigger than the rest.  I am hoping for leghorn for eggs but either will do! :)

Yup, you got 2 broilers. Strange that they would put those two breeds in the same pen.

@iowachickens maybe this post will help? Although, it makes me think mine aren't leghorns 😂
