    I purchase 6 ISA Browns and one the one on the left is completely different than the other 5. Which all look like the chick on the right. Any ideas?

    It's hard to tell from the picture but it could be a Leghorn or a Light Sussex

    For breed ID you'll want to turn off the light or move the chick out of the brooder to take the photo - a few minutes is not going to hurt. Show, or describe, leg color as this is just as much a consideration as down color - same goes for the area in which the comb will grow -- is it showing that it will be single, pea, rose, etc

    with all that red glare, they could be wild sparrows, just can't really see them.
