    I front picture would be good to see her width, but from that view, I think she looks like a white rock.

    Yyeahhh. LOL! Ive been on BYC for awhile. I havent seen a white rock before, thats why i thought she may have been a oversized broiler!!! I am usually very good at telling the breed of chickens [​IMG] Not in this case!

    How can you tell the difference - white rock or leg horn?

    im no expert... im guess leghorns are more slim-bodied birds, and white rocks are plump. White Rocks are crossed with White Cornish to produce the Rock/Cornish hybrid that makes up most of the roasting chickens found in supermarkets.


    Wait, feathersite says its a broiler or a white rock/cornish?
    Is this girl a plain white rock? wouldnt that still make her a broiler?
