    Bantam with walking problem

    I dont think it is sprattle leg. He can walk pretty good at a very slow pace. But when he tries to go any faster he will fall and use his wings trying to stay up. He flops a lot before getting on his feet again. MIKE

    Big Cornish cross chickens for xmas

    I bought some chicks from the feed store and I think they were cornish X but not for sure. I dressed on, fried it and it was tough. Tried boiling one and it was tough too. What makes them tough? I think they were about 14 or 16 weeks.

    my broilers are having trouble walking

    I bought some chicks from feed store and now they are eating size but are developing trouble walking. They seem healthy otherwise. Dont know what breed but are solid white and long legged. Could it be the breed? Maybe they are commercial breed and have this trait.
