Ok, I am a new chicken mommy and have fell in love with our 2 new chicks. Dd hatched them in class and we brought 2 of the 9 or so home. I didnt know what breed they were and figured we would figure it out as they got older. Now I am thinking that they are cornish rocks. Are they really only good for eating? We were hoping for these to be pets that would be around for a bit and maybe lay some eggs as a bonus. I dont want to keep them around if they arent going to be comfortable. Here are a few pics...they are about 6 weeks old... A few charactaristics that are hard to see...they have HUGE feet, they have grown really quickly, the pullet is bigger than the cockerel. I dont know if those things make a difference or not. Thanks for any input.
