Has anyone ever heard of a Red Star chicken??? Every time I see a picture of a hen that looks exactly like our Red Star hens, the person says they are "Sex Links". Are Red Stars even a true breed? No one ever says anything about them! I can't find many pics of them when I look them up on like Google, but they are at McMurray Hatchery.So they do exist. I'm just wondering why people call them sex links.are they an actual breed? They look similar to RIRs, but lighter.
