    No photos but, if it is white, and eats like a pig - sounds like a Cornish x which is a meat bird. I can't be certain without seeing a photo

    Hi April and welcome to BYC. Once you are able to upload a pic, you could post it on the gender and breed forum - What Breed or Gender is This?

    Best wishes
