    Could you get a better picture? Did you buy it as Red sex-link? If so it is a cockerel.

    I got it from tractor supply and they claimed they were all pullets that were ISA Browns. So I have no clue what kind they are [​IMG]

    ISA browns are a type of Red sex-link. I think you've got a cockerel.

    ISA Browns are sexable by color. Male chicks are pale yellow, female chicks are golden or red. When they feather in, females are mostly red with some white. Males are all white and develop some red 'leakage' as they mature.
