Black Star

Black Star Sex-Link chickens are an excellent brown egg-laying breed. Our Black Stars and Red Stars meet our strict specifications: easy to raise, lay large brown eggs, and have a good feed-conversion ratio. 

A sex-link chicken is a hybrid which, at the time of hatch, can be sexed by its color. Female Black Star baby chicks, pullets, are almost all black with some having a small amount of white on its neck. Male Black Star baby chicks, cockerels, can easily be identified by a small white dot on its head.   

McMurray Hatchery carries two lines of Black Stars. One line is predominantly black with a red chest. The second line is barred with a grey chest. Both are proprietary hybrid crosses. Sorry, we are unable to take requests for a specific line or color. 

At maturity, Black Stars weigh a little over 5 lbs. Females are black with either a gold or silver neck and breast feathers, and are egg-laying machines. Males are black with white barring. Sex links are hybrids, and will not retain the same sex link characteristics in future generations.
