    Hii
    I have a red star roo and hen... if bred together is their a chance that they produce SOME red star chicks( b/c not all of the chicks will be b/c red stars are a cross breed) If you understood what I meant please!!! Reply!!! And can my red star roo and all the rest of my hen(breeds and mixes) produce chicks that have the good laying gene?

    Fred went into that--said the third gen layers were still outstanding. Not quite to par with the first gen, but still above average. Read that entire thread if you really want informantion, he's got a ton there.
