    Is this a boy or girl? I was told they were girls but this one doesn’t look like the other 2.

    It's a pullet(girl). Red sex links(what these are) are mixed breed and can vary widely in the plumage balance of red and white

    Yes, isa are one type of red sex link. When the source is not known, rsl is the appropriate term as the proprietary names, such as isa brown, should only be used for birds of the specific lines used for that proprietary type of red sex link.
