    I am not entirely sure what breed my hens are. I was told they were 'Highland Browns' but I'm kind of thinking that maybe they are Isa Browns. I bought all the hens from the same seller. Sorry if this is a silly thread but here are some photos:
    Note: The two top pictures are the same chicken.

    Hope these pictures are good enough.

    Are you sure they weren't highline , I'm no expert but I thought isa brown and highline were pretty much the same thing. I have 4 x isa's that look just like yours.

    They're red sexlinks. :) As for what kind of red sexlink they are (ISAs, Highlands, Stars, etc.), I couldn't help you with that. The different names are supposedly for the different combinations of breeds that go into them (certain red-feathered breeds over certain white-feathered breeds), but many of those names are used interchangeably, so who knows. If the person you got them from said Highland Browns, I'd assume that's what they are. ;)

    Thankyou for the post Kristin! You've really helped me out here, I wasn't 100% sure the seller knew what they were...he sure didn't sound certain about it so I thought I'd ask.
