    Only once in 50 years of raising chickens have I ever heard the label Rhode Island Brown used and it was indeed used for a Red Sex Link cross between a Rhode Island Red rooster and a Rhode Island White hen. This particular Red Sex Link is more commonly marketed under the labels Gold Sex Link, Gold Star, Cinnamon Queen, Bovans Brown, Golden Buff, Golden Comet, Isa Brown, Shaver Brown, Babcock Brown, Warrens, HyLine Brown, Lohmans Brown, Brown Shaver, and Red Shaver, so any chicken sold under these labels would be essentially the same Red Sex Link hybrid.
