    I want to order some chicks. I Want some ISA Browns. I have only found one hatchery that carries them, Townline Hatchery in Zeeland, Michigan. I PM'd a BYC member who works there but was wondering if other members have ever gotten any chicks from them.

    Arent Isa Browns the same as Red Sex-Links? I might be wrong, but someone will correct me.
     
  4. Honestly yes, I believe they are all the same. Red sex links, Cinnamon Queens, Production Reds, all the same bird.

    No I haven't ever ordered from Townline.

    They are a type of Sex Link, only dfifference is a white Rooster was used as apposed to the normal Bard Rock Rooster.
    I rather like the white under color and lacing on some of them , its interesting.
    I wonder if the roosters in this type are born white like the reds, comets, and blacks are born barred?
    when and if you get them please hatch some out, so we can see the difference.
