    ok, I may have been sold the wrong breed! I was buying cornish X from a local store.. and bought 2-of these birds. They were yellow when I bought them! Do we have a mix-up? One interesting note; I have 5-week olds heavy layers, and this guy pictured is just 3 weeks old. The 5-weeks are at 10oz, and these guys are too!

    What is your best guess as to the breed of this 3-week old bird?

    Red Sex-link pullet. They would have been yellow as chicks, also, but a tad smaller.

    thanks guys for your input. Well, as soon as the red came through, I knew something was up... oh well, they are indeed my favorite in my flock!
