    Cinnamon Queen or Isa Brown or what?

    I was sold an Isa Brown and a Cinnamon Queen but as they’ve grown into pullets I’m confused! I thought the red white one was the Isa Brown but it looks like a Cinnamon pullet. The red with black doesn’t look like any Cinnamon Queen or Isa Btown pullet I’ve seen. Any help? BTW: the others are 2...

    Broody ISA brown! The impossible happened and now i need tips.

    The impossible happened, my 1.5 yr old ISA Brown has gone broody, all bald belly, pissed off and has consistently stayed in her nest for 3 days, defending it vigorously from the others. Has anyone had luck with letting your ISAs brood? How are they as mothers once the chicks are here? Shes not...

    Sick hen

    Hi everyone. I’m hoping to find some help with my dear Ruby. She is approximately 6 years old, she doesn’t lay anymore, and hasn’t since we “adopted her” last year so I know it’s nothing laying related. I’ve just loved her since the day I met her and wanted to give her a home. She is an Isa...

    My ISA Brown chicks are still very skittish of me

    I have an established flock of about 10 chickens but recently I purchased 2 ISA browns and 2 assorted bantams from TSC. I've had them about 1 month now and I read somewhere that ISA browns are usually very friendly. However, the 2 that I have don't seem to like me or anyone else. I have kids so...

    ISA pullets?

    I purchased ISA pullets from Hoover’s hatchery. They all came red in color. My wife and I are brand new to chickens and a backyard flock. These ISA chicks are growing faster than the other three week old chicks we have. Can someone confirm these are pullets? And ISA? Thank you

    Hiya all!

    I'm Mare and my husband and I started raising chickens and ducks last year. We started small with 3 hens and a roo and then added some meat birds as well as more Pekins to go with our duckers (Pekins and Rouen) last summer. We got hooked and have added around 2 dozen new chickens to our flock...

    Is my Heather a cockerel?

    I got 3 baby chicks (sexed Isa brown from a big pet shop) around 5 weeks ago. Heather is the smallest without tail feathers and she developed it slower than the other two. Ever since then I started worried about whether she’s actually a he :( Right now I guess they are probably 6 or 7 weeks old...

    ISA Brown x Ameraucana Cross Green Egg

    Over the summer some of our ISA Brown hens went broody unexpectedly. We have a pure-bred Ameraucana rooster with them so we decided to let the ladies try to hatch some chicks. We had 2 eggs successfully hatch, but sadly only one chick made it to adulthood. She just laid her first egg and it came...

    Mixed Dozen and a Roo too!

    Hello all! I decided to join the forum because so many times over the last few months when I google topics regarding chickens, something on this forum pops up. So I figured why not go right to the source. Last November, we purchased our homestead located on 13 acres and one of our first...

    My Hen is Sick, but I’m not Sure What it is.

    Hi guys. My ISA Brown hen Amy has suddenly become very sick-looking. She’s ~2 1/2 and has always been a very energetic and happy chook, but now she’s acting really sad, lethargic and sick. Her comb has flopped over, her tail is tucked down and she tends to just stand or sit in a corner of the...
