    It is hard to tell, it might be a white leghorn or a white wyandotte. Maybe someone else will have more of an idea for you.

    They kind of remind me of my Cornish cross chickens that I got, Not really sure tho'. If they are the cornish cross chicks, watch out they grow super duper fast. Mine (Mr Meany) is about twice the size of my others I got. I have a total of 14 now 2 Barred Rock roos, 2 Barred rock hens, 3 RIR hens, 4 buff orphs, 2 Araucaunas, I think are hens and 1 Cornish cross.

    Have fun watching them grow!!!!!!!!!

    Agree on the cornish cross...a full body picture would be better to determine the breed.

    My son just came is as I was looking at this post and said "Hey Mom isn't that like one of our chickens?" We had cornish rocks and they looked just like this. I have to say that when I saw your post the other day it was my impression as well.

    Quote:Wyandottes don't have single combs, well, they shouldn't, normally they have pea combs. Yeah, they do look cornish crossy, for meat. They usually die of heart attacks early on. Get another breed if you want eggs, because these guys just keep eating.
