    That's a red sex link. Never heard of Brown Warren but would assume it's a sex link like ISA Brown. There are several crosses done for a red sex link and each hatchery will have it's own name. It can be confusing. Red Star, Comet, ISA Brown, Cinnammin Queen, Red Sex-link....the list goes on.

    Brown warren is another name for a Red Sex Link. Because it is a hybrid, it has no fixed name so people called them all sorts - red stars, golden comets, etc.

    I hope that explains it.
