    got these girls last night they are in quarantine cage for now. the guy said they were black star and red star
    im not sure but they are pretty girls.
    the red ones dont have the dappled look i was expecting.
    they do have some iridescent greenish streaks in the neck area.

    Black Stars and Production Reds. Definitely not Red Star -- they are red with white leakage.

    The blck ones look like black sexlinks, the red ones look pretty dark red, so I don't know, I just have Golden sexlinks and she is much lighter in color, they are very pretty birds though! [​IMG]

    YUP... pics above show it all...

    Although there's more red in the black star than any I've ever seen.... still a black star though.
