    Since I get several emails from people with Cornish X chickens they have rescued or 'accidentally' gotten, I created a Yahoo Group so we could all lend our knowledge to others that might not be 'into' chickens but still want to help 'that chicken on the road'.
    http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/fallenchickens/
    So if you have pet Cornish X chickens, please come and join us [​IMG]

    I used to have a cornish X. He was the best chicken I ever had, he thought he was a dog. He was very large(15 pounds) but his name was Tiny.

    Wow he looked amazing!
    How old did he get to be and what happened to him?

    I had him for 2 years and he was 8 months when I got him.
    He was attacked by a neighbors dog and went into shock and died before we were able to reach the vet's office.
    He was my baby.

    Oh I am so sorry to hear that, he looked like a big marshmallow. I am sure he would have been alot like my Bob (r.i.p.).

    Thanks.
    He was such a sweet boy. He followed me all around the yard, he knew to come when I called his name.
    I dont think he knew he was a rooster, he never crowed,lol.

    I had his 3 brothers at first, but it got to be too much to have 4 huge roosters at once, so I gave them away and kept him since he was the sweetest of them all.
