A beautiful snow white hen, laying 300 - 320 large white eggs per year. Described as a petite little ballerina, smaller compared to some of the other hens but with a beautiful shape,and a striking long white tail.

"Crazy, elegant and a great layer - that's a..."
Pros - Great layers of large white eggs, docile, curious birds that go well in a mixed flock.
Cons - Large wattle that in cold climates could be prone to frostbite.
My white star is called Zazzles after my daughter's friend named it. She is quirky and deals with confinement well - when the electric fence was being delivered she had to stay in a small run. She lays big white eggs like clockwork everyday and doesn't pick on other birds. We raised her from a day old chick and her wattle is so big that if you hadn't seen her lay her eggs you would of thought she was a rooster. I live in England so don't have to deal with much harsh weather but in colder climates I could easily see the wattle becoming a problem due to frostbite. All in all a great addition to anyone's flock!
"A Friendly and Good Pet"
Pros - Sweet, mild tempered, loves to be pet
Cons - None so far
My 4 month old White Star is a great pet. She'll come right over and sit by my leg for comfort and protection, and loves to be pet. She's very mild-tempered, and I haven't seen her get into a fight with any chicken, and vice-versa. I haven't had an egg yet from her, but with her small size, I'm excited to see it.
Pros - good layer of large white eggs, tends to be higher in the pecking order, good looking
Cons - can be harsh on hens lower down the pecking order, flighty.
my white star is a lovely looking bird but unfortunately, can be vicious to newcomers or hens lower than her. she is a good layer of large white eggs. I would get another 1 but only 1. also very flighty.
