    I thought these were cornish x's but the more they grow the more they look different. I have 4 of them all about the same size, and no where as big as my cornish x. Is it possible they are male red stars. Here are a couple pics.

    In this shot there are a couple in the background, but the one in the foreground next to my cuckoo marans, you can see the color isn't white there is a slight red tint compared to the cornish on the other side of my marans.

    This image has a shot of the same bird as before and one with its back to us, with a cornish x beside it. The leg colors are different and the tail feathers are different.

    Thanks for any imput.

    Well, it really doesn't look like a Cornish x, does it?! [​IMG] Yeah, it could be a male RSL... Very possible. It's got the red... BUT... I don't have personal experience with RSL. I just think it looks like those I have seen online. [​IMG]

    I think you're right, male red stars/red sex-links.
