    I have 10 'assorted' chicks from TSC. They are around a month old now. I picked out 5 of the same chick thinking they (hopefully) were going to be EEs.

    I'm now wondering if they might be dark cornish instead.

    I keep going back and forth...the thing that really has me wondering is that they have sparse feathering on their breast as compared to the others. Their legs aren't white, aren't really yellow, but aren't a grey/dark/green color either. More like a dirty yellow color. Maybe just light green??

    ANYWAY, Does anyone have any pics of their dark cornish hens at around a month of age?? I've checked feather site, etc but there aren't any really good pics of dark cornish juvies that I've been able to find.

    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the info, MJ - I love the pics on feathersite!

    I need to get out there and take some pics of these girls and maybe that will help get some opinions on IDs...
