    That there looks like a Cornish cross, and therefore would be primarily raised for meat.

    Looks too red in the face compared to body proportions to be pure white rock roo to me, so I am going with cornish cross as well.

    Cornish Cross raised on a controlled diet instead of stuffed silly like they normally are. Still would make for good meal though.
