    I love Townline's ISA-browns! They are the best layers ever!!!! I have got 26 hens and 26 eggs per day is what to expect, 1 egg a day per hen! If I were to buy anywhere else it would have to be Mcmurray hatchery, they've got red stars that are real close to the ISA-Browns so they say.

    ISA Brown and Hubbard Brown and Bovan are synonymous name for one breed.

    Bovan browns are patented by Centurion Poultry and ISA's are patented by Hendrix. They are not the same.

    Quote:Well, sort of. The ISA has been bred scientifically for decades now. Breeding any run of the mill RIR over a RIW will not produce a true ISA.

    I spent some time searching the net before I ordered my ISAs from Townline. So far as us small-flock purchasers go Townline seems to be the only source for genuine ISA birds.

    I'm sure the commercial guys have other sources but it appears that we do not.

    Townline did right by me so I'm not unhappy with them. I ordered fifty five birds, they sent fifty eight, they took three full days to reach me (Michigan to Florida) in the middle of Feburary, and here it is March second and I still have fifty eight active, vigorous birds in my brooder. What more can you ask for?
