    Ok, so I've just about got everyone else IDed except for this one.. I really want to have a good idea of what it is and moreover, if it's a roo.

    Thoughts?

    How old is the chick? Is it possible it is a Cornish X (meat bird)? It's stance says roo to me, but it is hard to tell so early.

    Great pictures.

    I was thinking Cornish X as well, though I THOUGHT they didn't sell meat birds. Must have been mixed in.

    I'd had it for a week so far since getting them from the store. It's larger than the others, but has not gone beyond, so I thought it was just older.

    Camera is a Cannon Digital Rebel XT with the "not as good" lens on it.. a Sigma 26-70mm. Takes awful closeup pictures.. I've got a better lens, but it's large and more for outside and macro pictured. Have to be a ways back to get it to focus right.

    I'm hoping that it's not, but fear that it is.. I've already got a Buff roo and don't need another, top that off with the grows like mad and dies early meat birdiness of the Cornish X and it becomes rather depressing.. :p

    Anyone else have an opinion to add, or would it be best to wait a week and see once it's grown out more?

    It could be a leghorn. If you wait another week, it'll be easier. Watch and see if it grows bigger than the other chicks -a cornish x will be obviously larger and have thicker legs in a week or two, while a leghorn or white rock will still blend in with the others.
