    WPR has yellow legs, and are dual purpose so could be raised w/out eating them.

    Cornish x - meat birds- sorry but, they usually are "Processed" at 8--10 weeks of age hopefully before their legs give out, or organs fail. If you can get them to free range with other breeds it will get them moving and they have to work harder to find bugs, etc. it can extend their life somewhat. But I don't even know if they get to laying age, they can lay eggs if they live long enough.

    Looks much too "chunky" for white rocks.
