    My chick order was for Barred Rock, Australorp, Rhode Island Red and Buff Orpingtons.
    LOL! I know she's not a Barred Rock or Australorp, but she isn't looking like the RIR or BO, either.

    I've been trying to look at photos all over but I decided it would be much easier to just ask here.
    Thanks so much!

    Looks like a red sexlink pullet got snuck in with the Rhode Island Red chicks. They look very similar as chicks.

    I'd seen photos of Red Sex Link and ISA Browns that seemed similar but wasn't sure because the photos weren't great. Thanks!

    Isa Browns are just a 'brand' name for one hatchery's red sexlinks.

    Well, there you go! [​IMG]

    Funny thing is I bought these chicks from Meyer Hatchery and I went to their site to research Red Sex Links & ISA Browns to verify that maybe that is what it was. They don't show either on their site when I tried a search. If they don't sell them how did I get one?
    I'm not too worried about it...just curious.

    Thanks again!

    LOL!

    I do say it's a good day when you learn something new. It's been a good day.
    Thanks for the help.
