    I can't post pictures yet because I am too new, but I will respond to myself in hopes of reaching the limit so I can actually post pictures of the chick in question. I don't know how frowned upon that is here!

    The chick in question is 17 days old, and the pictures were taken at 1 day old and 13 days old.

    I picked up 4 Isa Brown pullet chicks from the hatchery the day they were hatched, and this one just seemed so much lighter than the others.

    I know Isa Browns are able to be sexed by color, but I haven't been able to find any pictures of male chicks in a general google image search to compare mine to.

    It is just so...white compared to the others!

    Two of the chicks (this one and the runt) were both striped, though the runt was a darker color even with the stripes. The other two chicks were solid tan.

    Sorry for all the posts, but I am down with a bad cold and not able right now to fill up my required posts with something productive on other threads!
