    I saw a picture of a red star that had white on its neck. Do all have different colors (red through white, not like black or anything [​IMG] ) or are they all just red and that ones different? Pictures would be helpful.

    The stars are the same as the black sex links. They are all the same, if you saw one with white on the neck then it was likely mixed with something else. Unless it was a rooster , in which case they look like barred rocks pretty much.


    EDIT: Oh wait. You said red star not black star lol doh! Im a tard.

    There are a number of different types of Red Sex links. (Red Stars)

    The ones that Ella showed on her thread are Cinnamon Queens. There are at least 3 other types, depending upon who is the mama and who is the daddy.

    My Cinnamon Queen is a laying machine! Large dark brown eggs almost every day.

    Just a quick note, one of my black sex link hens has a very small patch of white on her neck and since sex link/star chickens ARE mixed breeds I don't imagine it matters much.
