    I have 3/7 girls laying now, 2 white rocks and red star. Our red star is the smallest chicken we have, and the girl "rocks!" She lays the biggest eggs of the three. The others look still look like little pullet eggs, but not Myrtle's. Her's are HUGE! I feel for her![​IMG]:bow

    May I ask... what is the difference between a Production Red and a Red Star? Is it the same thing? I have 3 RIR hens and 4 Production Red pullets... but gosh should I get some Red Stars? (are Black Sex Links just as good??)

    I have a Brn LH that lays some big white monsters! For a while there, she was giving us 2 to 3 double yolkers a week! But she's big for a leghorn though... [​IMG]
