I have one 8 month old Tetra(isa) Brown.It is really a wonderful hen.She has nice temperment,shy personality and seems to be very relaxed all the time.She lays about 6 super jumbo eggs a week.Its just a very nice all around chicken.The only thing I did notice that could be issue for some people was she wasn't naturally a free ranging bird.When I first started letting her out with other chickens in yard she really didn't know how to scratch and hunt for bugs and insects.It took a couple weeks before she learned from other in the flock now she does just fine. I mention this because someone just starting flock and looking for good free ranging birds.I would not get Tetra Browns all by themselves.I would mix in a few good free ranging breeds for them to learn from.Here is pic showing size and color eggs she lays.

I wanted post this because its almost spring time and people might be thinking of getting flock of chickens or adding to their flock. I was going to wait till she was 1 year before my official review of breed.

Tetras are not Isas. Different companies with different breeding stock. The both happen to be red sexlinks, though.
mine is isa Brown but ive been told that tetra browns are same only breed by other breeders.Kinda like saran wrap (isa) other label plastic wraps (tetra brown) same product.

Sort of, but not really. Each hatchery has their own 'recipe' for breeding them, maintaining their own parent flocks. Think of it as more like chocolate chip cookies. Lots of companies make chocolate chip cookies, and each company has its own recipe. ISAs, Tetra Browns, Cinnamon Queens, Golden Comets, and Lohman Browns are all red sexlinks. But produced by different companies/hatcheries, all made with slightly differing recipes.
