    Went to TSC yesterday, bought 6 pullets. The crazy thing is someone took the sign down that told what breed they were and nobody from TSC knew what kind they were. All they knew for sure was that they were all pullets. What concerns me is they rang up Cornish Rocks. I wanted laying hens not meat birds. Can anyone tell me for sure ?[​IMG]

    To me the darker ones look like Production Reds but I am not sure of the lighter colored ones as I have never had meat birds. If the legs are white (see the videos in the following links) they may be Buff Orpington chicks. I am not sure on any of your chicks, but thought the links may be helpful to you. Note the leg color of the cornish crosses in the video - I have never had them so cannot be sure.

    If the white ones are meat birds you will soon know because they will grow far faster that the others
