First time chicken owner. Ordered isa Browns but I'm thinking they are indeed something else. RIR/Production Red??
Also, I believe one is a rooster! Any insight???

Was just at the store I ordered from. The ISA Browns and RIR were in stock. It was pretty clear to see that my chicks are identical to the ones labeled "Rhode Island Red" (of course I've realized hatchery birds can be production red or whatever) and they look nothing like the chicks labeled "ISA brown" I didn't even look into it until I thought I had cockerel in a supposed sex link breed. The worker must've thrown the wrong chicks in!
