When they start layering. 6 months. You can add a rooster.. any rooster you want. Nice rhodeislandred would be good.. but any would work

ISA Browns are a crossbreed, and as such, do not breed true. If you want to know how to breed your own sexlinks, check out this thread,

All the good info is in the first post.

If you're wanting an adult rooster, then wait till the hens are laying well before adding him. If you want a young male, than get one that's about 10 to 12 weeks old. Introduce him when the hens are all mature and laying. He will be young enough, that a few pecking order scuffles with the older girls will keep him well behaved for a good, long time.
