    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join us. You have a beautiful flock and some great layers. Isa Brown is one of a number of labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links, which are produced by crossing a red gene rooster with a silver gene hen. The resulting offspring can be sexed by color from hatching (male chicks are whitish, female chicks are reddish), and like all Red Sex Links, Isa Browns are egg laying machines, outlaying either parent breed. It's one of the interesting quirks of hybridization. Your going to get loads of eggs from those four girls. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.

    G'day and welcome to Backyard chickens. You may also be interested in the aussie thread "Australia, six states and one funny little island." What a nice flock you have? Hope you will enjoy BYC as much as we do.
