[/IMG][/IMG]Hi, I have never had chickens before and ended up getting some from the feed store. I'm not sure which kind they are they told me they could either be cornish, leghorn, maybe Plymouth Rock. Mine are 8 weeks old right now.... Any ideas? I asked them a few weeks after I got them so they didn't remember what kind they had then.

I also think leghorn.

They're not Cornish cross, if they were they'd be butcher size now. And they're too light bodied to be Rocks, so leghorns it is!

Thanks!! I am happy they aren't cornish since I got them mainly for eggs. I am hopefully going to get some more chickens, any ideas on how to add new chicks to the flock? Someone said to have another "coop" to put them all in together for a few days. This seemed like it would be more stress for all of them?
