Alright, I am going to get my new chickies and since my youngest has no clue what he wants we are just going to let him see what looks cute. A lady at Tractor Supply told me this morning that she doesn't know all the breeds they will get, but will have RIR and Cornish and several others (I am really counting on the "several others" being cool!!). Now, Cornish are ALL meat birds, right? Or is it just the Cornish crossed with something else that have the health issues? I DO NOT want a meat bird. I want all my chickens to live long, healthy lives and would like lots of eggs, too. So, in order to avoid getting a Cornish by accident, do I just need to avoid all the soft, fuzzy, yellow babies? That is what I am assuming they will look like?
