    The Stars breed of chicken is fairly standard when it comes to physical attributes - small red com, small red wattles, and red coloring around the eyes. But when it comes to egg-laying, this particular breed is anything but fair. Star hens have the ability to produce five large eggs per week. According to the American Poultry Association, Black and Red Stars are not actually recognized as official breed, given the fact that they are merely a sex-linked breed.

    Star chickens have distinct color of their own, even when though they just hatch. The Red Star is a cross breed of Rhode Island Red male and a Delaware Female while Black Star is a cross breed of Rhode Island Red male and a Barred Plymouth Rock Female.

    Star chickens are noteworthy in a lot of things - excellent layers, a good source of meat and excellent show birds.
