Black Star

Black Star Sex-Link chickens are an excellent brown egg-laying breed. 

A Sex-Link chicken is a hybrid which, at the time of hatch, can be sexed by its color. Our Black Stars and Red Stars meet our strict specifications: easy to raise, lay large brown eggs, and have a good feed-conversion ratio. 

At maturity, Black Stars weigh a little over 5 lbs. Females are black with gold hackle and breast feathers, and are egg-laying machines, and males are black with white barring — they will not retain the same characteristics in future generations. 

We have two lines of Black Stars. One line is predominantly black with a red chest. The second line is barred with a grey chest. 

Order as few as 6 Mix & match for a 6 chick minimum order.
