    I have 3 of those too and I have no clue either. Mine are about 12 weeks old now. I got them from Murray McMurray with their Rarest of the Rare assortment.

    This is an older picture. I think about 6 weeks old.

    Take care,

    I also have 3 of these!! (see "mystery chicks" in the raising babies board) Pine Grove told me the same thing: White Laced Red Cornish. But I'd like more info... Do you have any idea roo or hen? I can't tell at all. Are these like the cornish x's and get huge and have heart attacks and die?

    I'm waiting for a response from McMurray. I sent them a picture.

    They don't get big like the Cornish X's. They are a standard size.

    Take care,

    They look like WLRC to me. I had one from MM...my "rare chick", too. He was a really sweet little guy.
