    I bought 6 chicks at TSC.

    The I asked the employee specifically if these were the breed I was looking for. She said yes.
    That is why I bought them. But I am starting to think they are not what I was told.

    What kind of chicks do you think these are?
    They seem to be growing really fast, and they are really aggressive.

    Cornish X [​IMG] I would say BO but they aren't really buff so that's out. They do sorta look like my BO crosses with my white mutt roo but I don't think any hatcheries sale BO crosses.

    If they aren't leghorns, they are likely white rocks. The meat birds I had at two weeks were MUCH MUCH bigger by 2 weeks.

    This is about 3 weeks...

    They don't have the meat bird leg thing going on so they are probably dual purpose.

    What did you ask for? Leghorns do have a spritey personality. But if they are chunky, possibly a meatbird?? [​IMG]

    Notice the leg size difference between amarook and silkiechicken.
    Silkie's chicks have thicker legs.
