    4 Love of Baby Chickens Chillin' With My Peeps

    I got a new hen from my cousin yesterday. Her name is Kitty. She comes running when you call, "Kitty, Kitty, Kitty!" [​IMG] I think that she is either a Cornish X or a Rhode Island White. She's HUGE. At least 10 lb. or more. [​IMG]

    I'll post a picture of Kitty tomorrow. No way am I going to go take a picture at 11:00 PM. [​IMG]

    Doubt she's a Rhode Island White - Hatcheries and feedstores don't offer them, and in general they are very, very rare.

    She might be a Cornish cross, however her age would tell. She might just be a well sized White Rock.

    Rhode Island Whites have rose combs and meaty bodies with level-set tails. Ideal doesn't offer such a thing. [​IMG]

    I have one 11 month old White Rock, and she is a BEAST! Bigger than my RIR. I also have a 12 1/2 week old White Rock Pullet, and she is by far my biggest pullet compared to the other standards I have out with her. Both are hatchery birds.

    OP That big girl looks like a cornish cross to me! They tend to have leg and heart problems so watch her food intake if you want to keep her as a pet.

    Illia- Did you even look under Ideal brown egg layers? I double checked AGAIN and they do offer "such a thing". Their Rhode Island Whites are a white bird with single comb. I'm not just making it up!!!!!!!!

    My cousin free ranged her all the time. She's used to being free ranged but I can't do it. There are too many Coyotes and Raccoons around here.
