    with the options you put it would be a red star. I am not a expert but I believe that NHRs would be a full medium dark red. Just not as dark as a RIR.

    Cool! Thanks. That is what I was thinking but I didn't know for sure. On the top picture the rooster in the background is a miniature fancy RIR so that is the color difference so... yah. Thanks!

    Quote:Ditto. As much as I like NHR's the red stars are better and longer layers and not nearly so nasty.

    Really??
    From what I've read Red stars production usually drops on their second year and then on their first year it drops dramaticly, I've myself dont have experience with NHR since mine are still to young to lay but from what I've read they lay a little bit less than red Stars but they hold their egg production better on their second and third year.
    But like i said thats just from what I've read.

    Well... thanks for letting me know! My uncle used to raise chickens when he was younger and he said it was a Red Star but I just wanted to make sure [​IMG]
