If your chick feels more "solid" in your hand at 2 weeks, could it be a meat bird?

    I have new chicks. Most seem "slender" but I have one that is more round, more solid, and heavier than others. Could it be a meat bird? Does anyone have pictures of meat bird chicks? I don't want her (hopefully a her) to be a meat bird...

    It would help if you could show a picture of the chick.

    The chicks are sleeping currently but I will snap a pic as soon as they (and I ) wake up tomorrow morning.
