    Rooster or hen???
    These guys are about 6 weeks old

    The first is an ISA brown. This one is deeper red than the other and has a much larger comb and waddles. It was bought from farm and home so it may not be a true ISA...

    The first one for sure is a rooster.

    Thanks for commenting back

    Does this mean they are not ISA's...?
    From what I know a rooster should be white
    But after all they did come from tractor supply

    I'm not too familiar with that breed. It looks like a production red or hatchery RIR to me.
