    This bird is big. We got her at the same time as the others and always called her big bird. She has very thick yellow legs. Always walks more upright like a roo. But she was yellow at birth and feathered out with this brown and white mess all over her back. Her head is very brown with some white specks.

    Im thinking she is a red laced white cornish. What do you think?

    I know of White Laced Red Cornish but have never heard of a Red Laced White Cornish.

    haha. l just caught that. Im dyslexic so I reverse things a lot.
    I got him from McMurray in the rare breeds. But not sure. I thought he was a WHITE lace RED Cornish.
    She has very thick short legs and thick chest. She's much bigger than the other chicks the same age.

    What about a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte? I have a few baby roos and it seems they looked like that in their awkward stage.
