    Do cornish X chicks have brown feathers that you'd see coming in first? I got 10 chicks this past Sunday and were told they were Cornish X but I thought those would have white feathers coming in!

    Should be white feathers. Did you get Freedom Rangers perhaps?

    cornish X have white feathers only, Red broilers which grow slower have red feathers.

    Hmmm I can't really tell. The yellow tint on the photos makes it hard to tell the exact color. The one on the upper left (standing on the wood) has the Stout legs of a Cornish X broiler, but the others don't have it as much...

    you will know soon because they will grow FAST if they are Cornish.

    Anyone else?
