    Are you thinking of a brown sex-link? Because the title makes no sense to me.

    Brown and Gold Sex-Link are almost like the Red Sex-Links and are sexed by the same colors. Males being yellow and females being a redish brown color at hatch.

    Here is all kinds of useful info about ISA Browns:

    This is my 1st year raising chickens and they are only 14 weeks old (*educated guess, got from local feed store as chicks, but do not know hatch date).

    I own 1 ISA Brown and 1 Red Sex-Link. Had a Bantam too, but he turned out to be a Roo, and I live in the City...

    As far as what they look like, mine has mostly brown feathers with some white in there too, yellow Legs, and red comb. Honestly though, its tough to tell mine, I only have two ways of telling the difference;

    1.) I put a red poulty band around the red sex-link when they started getting their feathers in(Read: they started looking more and more the same).

    2.) My ISA Brown is a little bit more doscile and curious, so she is a bit easier to handle and usually the first one to the scratch/treats when I drop some in. However, not so much easier to handle that I would say one breed is more doscile than the other in my VERY limited expirence.
