    I would like to find some hatching eggs for the Isa Brown breed (also known as Cinnamon Queen or Golden Comet). I also would like to buy some chicks in September after our extreme heat wave is over! Does anyone have any Isa's? Thanks much!

    Red sex-link chicks and hatching eggs are not hard to come by.

    But if you want ISA Brown red sex-link chicks the only source I am aware of that will sell to us small-timers is Townline Hatchery. http://www.townlinehatchery.com

    Anyone can make a sex-linked bird. Very few have the ability to produce high-production birds like ISA Browns or the other commercial birds. They are the product of massive breeding and selection programs.

    If you decide on black sex-links I have 2 barred rock hens with my black copper marans roos. The chicks are able to be sexed at hatch due to males having a white head spot.

    I did go to townline, and they definitely have the Isa Brown chicks, which I want to order in a month or two. For now, I would love to find some Isa hatching eggs! As for the black sex links, I do have 6 of them currently. Am looking for a breed that are reliable producers year around. Right now, out of 21 laying hens, we are only getting on average 4 eggs a day, due to our excessive heat! We have had temps between 98 and 112 with high humidity for over 30 days now, and temps over 100 is in our forecast for the next several days. ARG![​IMG][​IMG] Thanks much for the information!

    I will have true Red Sex links I have a RIR Rooster X Rhode Island White Hens late this year or the beginning of this year. This is what most hatcheries use or they use a RIR Roo X Delaware Hen. PM if interested. Thank you,
