    Bought 6 from TSC and they are 2 1/2 weeks old now. I have 2 that are a little bigger, more mature if you will. They do everything 1st and couple days later the others follow suit.

    I posted pics a couple weeks ago and someone said cornish meaties which I hope is not true.

    Here is a couple pics and I will try to post a couple more if my cell phone permits me.

    They look like Amberlinks, TSC gets them from Mt Healthy Hatchury. They are great laying birds

    usually, TSC has a sign listing what the birds are. there was nothing in their brooder?

    they do look like the meat chickens our TSC had

    I did see info sheets on each bin maybe 2 or 3 per bin but didn't see Cornish.

    Someone else posted some pics I saw today and they look the same as these.

    They have legs like my Leghorns but bodies and coloring like my Amber Whites. [​IMG]

    As long as they are not meaties I will be happy.

    It's funny, I watch them to do new things every morning and they never let me down. Lol
    Then a couple days later the rest of the group is doing it.

    They are definitely NOT meaties. Meaties are so wide and fat they look deformed. [​IMG]
