Definitely Cornish x.

They probably got all mixed up during Chick Days, it happens a lot. My TSC is great, almost everyone there raises birds, other TSCs don't have employees as knowledgeable about birds.

TSCs don't have employees as knowledgeable about birds.

But they do have employees about as knowledgeable as birds...

No eggs layers there but on the bright side they will make good eating X rocks in couple weeks or so. They really only sit in their own poo if confined. But plan on about 10lb of feed each to raise them for the next 3-4 weeks.​

Please do not quote from my post, taking it out of context. Either quote it as intended, in full, or make your own post. I am simply pointing out that not all TSCs have employees who are knowledgable about birds. They are often hired for their retail experience.

My post was fact, not an attempt to slam TSC employees.

Cornish X do lay eggs, but because of their size and rapid growth, they are prone to health issues such as heart attacks if not used for meat at a fairly early age (usually 7-8 weeks). Even if you wanted to keep them for eggs, the chances of them reaching laying age are slim.
