The Feathersite pages for RIR and sex-links. With actual ISA Brown sex-links it should be by color, the pullets are the reddish chicks. They have a lot of pictures that should help with the RIR, young roos won't be as extreme as the older ones. But usually young roos will have more and redder comb/wattle, bigger feet, more upright stance, and eventually get the male saddle, hackle and tail feathers.
