    Hello! I have a 5, two year old ISA brown hens. One of my hens feathers have started to turn yellowish from red color. I am very new owner to chickens and not sure what I should do or if this normal. I am also very new to this page site so I hope this is the right place to ask questions. Thanks for the help :)

    I've never raised ISA browns, so I don't know if this is normal for that breed or not. I do know that other, different breeds and varieties of chicken can develop slightly different colors as they age (for example, speckled/mottled birds often get more white on them), and this might be similar. Also, no disease/ailment that I know of is characterized by change in feather color. Your hen is probably fine.

    Thank you very much for your info :) I wondered if it might be something like that.
