    We bought five Red Star hens through Craigslist, and I wanted to check to see if that is actually what these are.

    That's what they appear to be. Red Stars typically have the white tips on some feathers.

    Thank you all for taking a look. I looked up Red Stars before buying these through Craigslist but wanted more confirmation.

    well they are red sex-links which are called by several different names and from what i can tell they all look different to. idk which ones you have from that pic though heres the cackle hatchery link the sex-links start on row 3 with the Cinnamon Queen.

    as for gold stars they might be golden comets instead they are also on the site above
