which is best layer...red or black star? do either peck or eat their eggs?
The red star is our best brown egg layer. There isn't a particular breed that is know for eating their eggs, any type could.
what is a straight run?
Straight run means, "just as hatched", unsexed.
Do the hens become broody or do you have to incubate the eggs? Also what is the liveability meat conversion of the roosters?
The Red Star are a production breed. They normally will not set on their own eggs, but also are not recommended for reproduction because they are hybrid. The babies will not have the same characteristics as the parents. We don't have an exact meat conversion for the roosters but they do get fairly large and make a good meat bird in about 4 to 5 months.Show all Questions and Answers
