Would this be a white cornishX?
It looks just like the cornish x chicks I have right now, so I think it is...
Should I seperate this one since they should be fed 12 hours on and 12 off?
Considering that chickens are social beasts that like to be with other chickens I would leave him with the others.
The odds are that your bird will not have any ill effects eating the same diet as your other birds. I also don't think that the costs and hassles associated with setting up housing for one bird are worth the potential losses even if the worst were to come to pass and the bird were to die.
Also, the bird MIGHT be a red sex link packing peanut roo. The ones I have had grew super fast the first few weeks, but then slowed down dramatically...
It looks just like my Cornish X broilers at about three/four weeks old. Growing too fast for the feathers to keep up and the huge legs/feet.
It looks like a cornish x to me - they will be three weeks on Monday. She is much bigger and heavier and has huge legs!
I know many people who leave food with their cornish Xs 24 hours a day without any ill effects so I would leave the little guy with the others. BTW yes, it is a cornish X.
