    Hi, everyone, this is the first time I've ever had chickens. Im 17 years old and my dad bought 2 from a farm in easter holidays. The lady at the shop said they are both females, but im not to sure.
    Can any help me tell if they are females or males, Also These are Isa brown?

    If you need anymore picture just let me know
    Thanks guys:

    Your girls look just like my Red Sexlinks, from doing a bit of reading it seems like an ISA Brown is the exact same thing (I'm a newbie too though)... If that's what you have, you've definitely got two girls because the males would have a lot more white.

    How old are your chickens in the second picture, and was it taken at the same time as the first? It looks like the chicken in the foreground has a bit more comb/wattle development but hard to tell for sure.

    They both look like girls to me. The Ducks are cute. Are they laying eggs yet?

    They are definitely Red Stars (a.k.a. Red Sex-Links). I love the way their neck feathers are. My friend has two that look just like yours. [​IMG]

    There just under 4 months now, and no I cant seem to find anything in the garden, I try sit out side all day to watch what they do, All they do is walk about have a drink off water, sit down clean them selfs and eat a little.
