    Hi, we have a motley crew of chickens and one proud rooster.
    We had a total of 22 new chickens and I have no idea how to tell if they are hens or roosters but a friend assures us they are all roosters. They come from 4 different hens, one white, 2 black and 1 multi toned brown.
    So I am hoping to learn more about my crew. I do know I have one Isa Brown lol but sadly she didn't go broody this year so no chicks.
    When I figure out how I will add some pictures. I just created an album on facebook in a backyard poultry group so I'll see if maybe I can find the fb group for this forum and add pics there?
    Anyhow,
    my name is Judy and I am about to turn 51.

    Welcome to BYC and our flock! Enjoy and don't hesitate to ask if you have queries. I am in Australia too, but not in Tasmania. If you'd like to meet more Aussies, you can post here. ISA Browns are typically not broody, you may need a purebreed hen to do that. Sounds like a lovely flock and good luck!

    G'day, and welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Isa Browns are Red Sex Links bred for high egg production, and since broody hens don't lay, Isa Browns (as CrazyChookz said) rarely go broody. If you would like the genders of your birds confirmed, just post their pics (full body profiles) on our What Breed or Gender is This? section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this and let our experts there take a look at them. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.
