    I am thinking about taking this rooster from a CL ad. However, they are claiming it to be an ISA Brown, and as I'm just learning about this breed, I have read that actually ISA Brown Roosters are white with red patches. Is this an ISA Brown or not?

    The pic came from the ad. I did end up getting him. He is very handsome and healthy looking. I think he looks like a New Hampshire Red maybe.

    Quote:thats not an ISA brown Red rooster, nor a gold sexlink rooster.. ISA brown roosters are mostly white with Red shoulders and breasts with lemon colored hackels and saddle

    He's not an Isa or any sex link. He's some type of hatchery red rooster, maybe a New Hamp, I can't see well enough to claim that breed for him.
