Red Star

Our Best Brown Egg Layer!!

Red Star sex link is the brown egg layer breed that meets our strict specifications: they are easy to raise, lay large brown eggs, and have a good feed-conversion ratio. Mature hens have reddish brown feathers with flecks of white throughout. Males are all white with nice yellow skin.

At approximately 22 weeks these hens will start to lay and lay they will — laying eggs right through hot or cold weather. We're sure this hardy breed will become a favorite of yours. No wonder it's called the Red Star.

A "sex link" chicken is one that can be sexed by its coloring at the time of hatch. They will not retain the same characteristics in future generations.
