Im confused because tractor supply co said there white rocks and they were very Small in 6 weeks but they started to grow very Big in 8 weeks is taht what Cornish x do people been saying taht I have Cornish x instead of white rock and that’s them in 4 months which they are now
Tractor supply makes mix ups all the time. Yes, they are cornish x not white rock. Cornish x grow a lot bigger a lot faster. I'm not sure if you know or not, but cornish x are meat birds and do not live very long. Yours looks healthy now, looks like you are doing a good job on caring for him.

Cornish X Aren't supposed to be big from the start. They are definitely Cornish X, and it was all a mix up. It is hard to tell a Cornish X from another chick as a baby, you only notice the difference as they get bigger. Hope that helps!

Here is a thread on keeping cornish cross as pets. I didn't read through it all the way, so I don't know if it tells how to care for them, but it should. Hope this helps! https://www.backyardchickens.com/threads/cc-cornish-cross-as-pet.1263701/
Well, you can treat them like meat birds, that is what cornish cross are, or, you could try and restrict there food and have them live a normal chicken life. That will take ALOT of time and effort though. You can look at the thread I linked in thins post or you can start your own thread, about how to care for Cornish X
