    Does anyone know if there is a difference between Isa Browns and Red Stars?

    I picked up some "red stars" from TSC (ordered from McMurray), and the following week I picked up some Isa Browns at a poultry show. Now that they're around 6 weeks old, they are starting to look a lot alike. They both have the reddish feathers with some white scattered throughout.

    Just wondering if they are truly two different breeds or just different names for the same breed?

    Thanks!

    Round here They call the red star a production red. I have one and she is the same a red in color with a few white spots. My guess is its the same just by a diffrent name. [​IMG]

    Oh well, I guess I can't complain... I've heard the Isa Brown's called "The Brown Egg Version of the Leghorn"
