    She looks like a White Plymouth Rock to me... Where did you purchase her?

    My guess would be a Leghorn-based hybird like a tetra tint or something similar.

    Do you think it is a cornish cross?

    Not at all. I raised some Cornish cross pullets to 12 weeks and they were over 10lbs, after being butchered and gutted. They were like small turkeys.

    Definitely not a Cornish cross for the reasons donrae gave. We have normally butchered our Cornish crosses for meat at 8 weeks. As other members have said, she is a White leghorn hybrid of some type. I would expect her to start laying somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-24 weeks. You should be getting eggs before much longer. Good luck.
