    I bought these what I was told were white rocks this past January, One of these hens weigh about 12 or 13 lbs, the other weighs about 10lbs, I was told they were hatched in april of 2009 when I purchased them. After reading a few posts on meat birds I'm starting to think they aren't white rocks but what is called cornish rocks, do you think I'm right or are they white rocks?

    And I should mention, they have a low laying rate, since I've had them them they have only layed at a 60 percent rate if that's any help..

    Those are Cornish Cross. White Rocks would not look so obese.
