    Then I have this little one. Supposed to be a cornish x, but I have had runt meat birds before and they still looked more like a meat bird just small.. this one doesn't seem like it to me, and obviously time will tell, but thought I would get a few pictures and ask!

    How old is it? It looks like a Cornish X. Though, if it isn't growing as fast, it may be a White Rock or White Leghorn.

    3 weeks. The other cornish are about 2x its size. Its growing right on track with the layer breeds I have.

    Here are two of the cornish

    Agreed. Cornish Rocks are produced by crossing Cornish roosters with White Rock hens. It could be a White Rock chick that accidentally ended up in the Cornish cross bin.
