    Red Stars is fine. Hatcheries make up all kinds of names for these hybrids. They're an intentional mix. Not a breed.

    They are, however, some the best brown egg layers in the universe. LOL Enjoy.

    I too bought six at TSC April 1st. Mine were labeled red sex links (red star) and look identical to yours. Bet your getting six eggs a day too.

    Mine are 21 weeks old now and all laying. The first one layed at 18 weeks and the last one just started about 4 day ago. I have two nesting boxes and they all use the same one.

    Yes, those are Red Stars! You'll soon be getting LOTS of eggs. I have a friend who has a Red Star, and her birds lays every day. It has only missed one day since starting laying last fall!
