Red Star

There will be limited numbers available, so order early if you would like to receive these unusual birds in your flock.

Red Star hens are a prolific layer of brown eggs. As a hybrid, they are extra good layers due to the Heterosis or hybrid vigor effect. Depending on feed and quality of care, they can produce over 300 eggs a year. When shipped, these chicks will be between 28 and 63 days old. At 28 days old, most chicks do not require supplemental heat, and so can be started out in your coop. They are vaccinated for Mareks and Coccidiosis. They have been watered with Quik Chik and given Gro Gel. They are fed with a highly nutritious feed formulated for optimum growth.

Because they do not require supplemental heat, we are able to ship as few as 1 of these 4-9 week old chicks. You can mix and match any type of 4 week old chicks in your order.
