    I was wondering if you guys could post your pictures of your cornish X birds at 2 weeks. This new batch that we got does not seem to be growing at the rate I am used to for Cornish X. They are still fluffy with just wing feathers at 2 weeks and they aren't as dirty either. I need a comparison.

    Welp hatchery. They were hatched on the 14th of June so they are 2 weeks old today but they don't seem to be growing as fast as previous batches that I have had.

    Can you please post a photo of yours and you will get an answer pronto. If you have doubts... You, more likely than not, got the famous WHOOOPS. Probably a white rock or leghorn, or ?

    trying to get photos now but they really don't look much different from the day we got them other than that their wing feathers have started coming in but my newly hatched babies at 1 week old have those coming in and the meaties are a week older.

    Judging by the size of their legs and feet, they appear to be CX to me.

    It must just be me then they seem smaller than the last batch did at 2 weeks old
