I am hoping to dot the i's and cross the t's with the town next week and finally get to order my chickens. I am planning a small flock of 6 or so birds. I am wondering if there is any egg production difference between the RIR and the Red Stars? I like the idea of the more historic breed like RIR but would the Red Stars put out more eggs or are they just more efficient in converting food to eggs. Also is there any difference in the two for winter laying?
