    [​IMG]Can anyone tell just by looking at this picture if it's a Cornish cross? One of my others might be and I don't know what breed this is so I'm really nervous and need some closure. Or does it need a better picture or have to be older?

    Yes it does look like a cornish cross but it'd be better if there is a full view pic of the chick.

    How old is it? What's it's weight? Based on comb size/redness vs. feathering it sure does look like a little Cornish Cross cockerel, but it's impossible to be sure without a full body pic.

    well it's only a little bigger than my others. Would it be a lot bigger if it was this breed? He's almost 4 weeks old.

    Yes cornish crosses being the broiler chicken breed will definitely grow to be big. I have had a cornish cross rooster who was raised on normal organic feed but grew up to be around 4 kgs i.e. approx 8-9 pounds.

    So is there a chance mine isn't that breed? Like a big chance? I'm attached!

    Does this chick hang out around the feeder most of the day? Would be good to see a photo of whole body and the other chick you are suspicious about for comparison.
