    I am about to look for a home for this boy (I am right that it's a boy aren't I?) and I need to know what breed to call him. Is he just a mutt? He looks white until i put him next to my delaware chick and then he looks very pale cream coloured.
    Many thanks in advance of replies

    Cornish or white rock? Looks like a meat bird.

    Oh no! I have heard meat birds dont live very long, is that correct? I really want to keep him but I can't keep a cockerel where I live.

    What does a White Star look like? Could he be one of those? Is he definitely a boy?

    I dont think there are White Stars. How old is he? Where did he come from?

    All my cornish x had yellow legs, so I am thinking he is a boy gold sex link.

    But, he's no Cornish X. They have yellow legs.

    He hatched from one of the eggs we bought for breakfast when we were on a camping trip. I then found out there were cockerels in with the hens so I saved them for the incubator and we had pancakes for breakfast instead!

    He has got white legs.

    Thank you all for being so helpful
