    These are my isa browns. the white 1 is older and is older than the red one. But the red one has a bigger comb and is worrieing me because we can't have roos. We were told they were both pullets and we got them from the show. Do you think they are both hens[​IMG]

    They are definitely both hens. Isa Brown is one of many labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links and they can be easily identified by color. The roosters have far more white in them than the hens.
