    Ok, someone came to our farm and dropped off these birds, the guy said they are 11 weeks old, and he said they are leghorns. Now i don't think they are, but im not sure so i came to the experts.

    As a kind of size comparison I am 6'3" 300 lbs hehehe they don't call me big phil for the fun of it.


    So what do you all think?

    Pretty heavy for 11 weeks old, i'm thinking they might be Cornish x however i am not too sure.

    They are at least 10 lbs. a piece.

    My guess is Cornish.......but I'm not familiar with the breed so I'm not really sure.

    Yup, I am thinking Cornish X, too. There is no way that is a Leghorn. Leghorns are such a light, delicate built bird.

    As adults my Leghorns weighed in at a whopping 4 1/2 lbs with HUGE floppy combs and skinny legs- I think you have a white Cornish cross.

    Im thinking cornish x because leghorns @ 11 weks old would have huge combs by now. Also, leghorns should mature to 5-5 1/2 lbs.
