Hi... just curious... I have about 12 red stars in my flock and I have been impressed with their production... this year I got 6 black stars... just as good at laying plus a little bigger for stewing purposes... But the big difference is temperament. Most red stars I have are flighty... one or two I can actually touch and they have been my biggest problem birds... egg eating and feather picking... I catch them in the act so I know they are the culprits... Black stars are more docile it seems and quieter... they will approach me with curiosity and even sit with me... I only have one red star that does this... Has anyone else noticed these things? Do Black stars have Australorp in them?
