    Thinking Cockerel
    Srry pics are not to good. taken with phone
    i put blue food coloring on it for identifying purposes when it was smaller.
    Now its the biggest of them all.
    Its bigger than my RIR pullets that are the same age

    It looks like a Cornish rock for eating. They grow really big really fast. Good eating! : )

    If it were a cornish cross, at four weeks it would be like four pounds. That's not a cornish cross, I'm thinking white rock.

    I have 4 chicks that look like yours...they were in the Mixed Pullet bin at TSC. The sign said they could be TetraLink, Amber Link, White Leghorn, or Golden Comet. Here's one of mine....
