    Cool, the wifey looked up red star on wikipedia and she looks exactly like the picture!

    Thanks so much!

    Are they good layers as a breed? I got some learning to do!

    If she does, I'd say Easter Egger. . . They do often come in this color, but usually on males.

    Not sure about the beard but she is a little fluffy at the back of her beak. I will try and get a better pic tomorrow.
