    What? Isa browns have chicks all the time. There is not reason for their eggs not to be as fertile as any other breed if they're with a rooster. They're a chicken just like any other. Their chicks just aren't sex linked like the parent stock.

    Well, I'd swap the rooster first before blaming the hens.
