Would a Cornish x be feathered out by six weeks, or be under seven lbs at seven weeks? we are going to be showing at the Ohio state fair and they can not be over seven lbs and we need a pin of four.

Ours are 5 1/2 weeks, 5-6 lbs mostly feathered. They seem to have feathers but they have not unsheithed (what ever the term is). I have grown these fast for room/turnover.

Mine are exactly 6 weeks now. The girls are mostly feathered out except for their bellies and weighed just over 3lbs last night. The roo is taking longer to get his feathers and still has some skin showing and his belly is mostly skin. He weighed 4.25 lbs last night. Hope this helps.
