    Hello, I am very new here so please excuse any mistakes I will probably make. This is my neighbors chicken, and nobody seems to know what type it is. I was wondering if somebody new. It is about half grown, and doesn't seem as white as it looks in the picture. [​IMG]

    Are you asking about the white one? A clearer photo would be helpful, but I'm thinking White Rock or possibly Cornish cross.

    Can you take another pic, I think the camera is focusing on the wire and is making the chick seem to be out of focus. Thanks

    It's a bit hard to tell the breed, I'm guessing it's either a Cornish X or white rock, or maybe even a mixed breed. A better picture would be really helpful though.

    Looks just like my cornish cross did. My cornish had a few black tips on a few feathers. She was part of a mix batch and grew very very fast. I called her big bird bc she was twice the size of everyone else. My cornish just died this Saturday after a year and two months. You should butcher her at 6-8 weeks otherwise she will become very fatty and be a very messy time consuming chicken. We found out too late for ours and I couldnt bare to cull her at that point.

    This picture isn't much better. There are no black marks on the feathers.

    Cornish Cross seems to be the consensus. I will have to tell my neighbors that they have meat birds and not egg birds.
