    Hello my parents ended up getting me a baby Cornish rock by accident and I grew attached with in a day but I have regular breeds also and I'm debating on if I need to return it to the feed store because I am afraid of it passing away. I was wondering if you had any tips...I'm in desperate need for good news ...I don't wanna give up

    I don't think you can return chicks for biosecurity reasons.
    Unfortunately, the cruelty is bred right into that chicken, and there's nothing you can do but give him a happy life and let him be loved while you can.

    Any chance you know someone who raised meat birds?
    Give it to them....or put an ad on craigslist.
    I doubt the store will take it back(I hope not anyway-good way to spread disease).
