We are looking at switching to Red Stars next year ( 2-3 dozen) and I am desiring advice. We need a strong layer to keep up with sales, and we know they lay super well in winter here in Alaska. All the flocks I have seen, look horrible. They pick each other to bits! But, one friend got them a few months ago, and they are not seeing these issues. Is it just an issue of space and feed that causes this issue, or, is it just a problme with this breed.
