I have purchased some chicks that were suppose to be California Whites, they look like Cornish Rocks. I just butchered a bunch of Cornish Rocks and these supposedly California Whites look just like them. There behavior is like them too. Eating and pooping all the time. They look like they are having a hard time walking because they are so heavy.

Is California Whites suppose to be like this?

These are about 4 - 6 weeks old. I agree with you I don't think that are California Whites either. The thing is Cornish Rocks after about 8 weeks are about as big as they should get or they will end up dieing of heart failure. I need to make sure that doesn't happen.
