Hi there! We have 7 hens that we bought as laying hens 2 years ago, so this is our first foray into raising chicks! Any chance anybody could tell me the gender of these 3 isa brown cuties? Thank you!

You can only tell by waiting till they are older or looking at the embryo before they hatch. Sorry I cant be more help. But they are cute!

I'm pretty sure they're all female. ISA Browns are a variety of red sex link. If they were male, they'd be yellow.

However, your last one is a bit iffy--I can't tell how red it is with the lighting in your photo. If the chick starts developing dark red shoulders, you'll know its male.

I dont know, im not a vet, but it has to be done by a scientist or something. Thats why hatcheries generally charge more for sexed chicks.
