    A lot of those photos are bantams. I just don't want everyone to think Cornish are all built like dumpsters.

    At the bird shows I have been to I am drawn to the Bantam Cornish, stocky neat looking birds.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

    Are they calm birds?

    Here is a pic of one of our hens

    Ours are on the flighty side but they just as solid as can be. When you pick one up it's like picking up a brick, they are that solid feeling

    Here is another really stupid question, these resemble the cornish x that I had for meat birds?

    (what was funny about the dark cornish question?)
