    I bought 6 tetra tint pullets from TS, but I have a feeling that 2 of them might be cornish hens. I can't post pictures yet but I was wondering if Cornish hens are flighty birds, because my two are flying all the time? Just trying to figure out what breed they might be. The other 4 look like the pics of tetra tints I have seen just not sure on sex.

    If they are cornish cross, you would not be the first person that this has happened to. I have seen multiple posts on this exact subject.

    so if it's a cornish cross do they still have a short life span?
     
  4. If this helps any....Cornish X's don't fly.
    They mostly lay down and eat and yes they can lay and eat at the same time.
