Before you start looking in the classifieds for ISA Brown Chickens for sale, there are a few things to keep in mind. Caring for your girls is easy. They are wonderfully low maintenance and adapt easily to various climates and surroundings. Being the prolific egg-layers that they are though, these gals may need some supplemental protein due to the fact that their bodies convert the protein from their feed into egg producing fuel and thus, their lovely feathers will need some protein TLC.

Early maturation allows these chickens to begin laying anywhere from sixteen weeks to twenty-two weeks of age versus the point of lay of other breeds which can be up to twenty-four weeks or even longer. Purchasing ISA Brown Chickens for sale at point of lay is a wise decision and a great place to start whether you are a veteran or a new chicken keeper looking for an egg-cellent, highly reliable laying hen.
