    This is my lonely 8 day old chick being all big and brave in the garden for the 1st time! had to have it in a little run as the local cats were walking about!! (What is it?! white wing and start of tail feathers?!)

    It now has a a friend in its brooder, wasnt really sure what to make of it though!

    Well... if it is a common bird, I say it is either a leghorn, cornish X, or white rock. If it is skinny feeling and flighty it is a leghorn. If it feels like a big warm ball and loves to eat, it's a cornish X. If it acts like a normal chick, it's a white rock! It got some meaty legs there though. Wait see guessing game!

    the smaller chick is def a cornish x but the larger one is from the mix and match so its quite exciting waiting and seeing! [​IMG]

    its feels skinny and doesnt seem to get used to me putting my hand in the brooder so maybe that means a leghorn! [​IMG] just read that they are good layers, but no meat on them?!

    Adorable!! I'm so glad you got a friend for it. I was sad for it at first because I thought it was all alone.
