    Pros: Good layers, nice big eggs, rarely go broody, very friendly and sweet-tempered
    Cons: Not the prettiest chicken

    I've found Red Stars to be very good layers, and some of their eggs are enormous. If you are looking for a chicken with a good personality, then I would recommend a star. They are usually good 'people-chickens' and will try to get into your house to be with you! However if you're after show chickens, stars are not the prettiest chickens around. Also keep in mind that sometimes (not often) they can be prone to bullying other hens.
