    I got 6 Isa Brown pullet chicks anout 6 weeks ago. I know they are a sex link breed, but one of he girl’s combs is much larger and darker red than her sisters. Is SHE really a HE?

    There is an obvious color difference in the down color for ISA Browns. You would have noticed an all whet to cream colored chick with the ones with brown

    They all had brown in their down when they were little, she didn’t stand out as all white or cream. She is the sweetest little thing too.

    Should be a pullet then. ISA Brown Roosters look lots different from hens.
