    We purchased 3 supposedly straight run white rock chicks at TSC. As you can see below 1 of those is a red sex link. I think the other two are not white rocks now but cornish x. They eat alot, lay down alot and arent very active. [​IMG]
    Do you think white rock or cornish x? Purchased on 3/8 so around 2.5 weeks old?
    Thanks so much!

    So they both look like cornish x and they look like males? Are the tail feathers the indicators? Well... i guess their names just changed to lunch and dinner... my boys will be so disappointed.

    Sexlink looks to be a cockerel production red and two Cornish x

    I would wait to call those Cornish X males.
     
  7. Sorry. I was describing the the red star as a cockerel and the other two Cornish X's. I have no guess as to sex. Both Cornish sexes are tasty though. :drool
