This is "Red" my red star roo. I got him from McMurrays. We have a broody hen who is raising up some of his chicks. I'm curious about what two breeds they use for Red Stars. I wrote them and got two different answers from them. The first person said Pearl White Leghorn crossed with a RIR. Someone who knows a lot about chickens told me that is not possible because the Pearl Whites are dominant white, so I wrote and told them that and asked again. The second person from McMurray said that she thinks they use a RIR and a Rhode Island White. I found a hatchery in Canada who had a picture of a red star that looked exactly like him and wrote them but they wrote back and said they do not give out the information. Another person on a chicken forum said his neighbor raises them for McMurrays and that they use White Rocks and RIRs. Can you tell by looking which answer is the correct one. I think the White Rock answer might be right.
