    I recently acquired 10 mystery birds. They are 6 weeks old and much larger than my BOs the same age. These creatures are so much heavier than the BOs too. They are like little tanks roving around! I am in process of finishing off the coop. I was trying to determine the type and possible sex of these fellows. There are five with larger combs, but I don't know if this determines sex or not. Anyone know what type of bird these are? The birds are white (pardon the dirty birds) with yellow feet.
    Thanks,
    steven

    Yup yummy raised some myself last year and still have a few left [​IMG] . The bigger wattles and combed ones that are red first will be big boys.

    Cornish rock broiler monsters- that's why they are so dirty. They are eating machines. Pull food for 12 hrs overnight or they'll die of eating to death.
