    i say turn the ole boy loose & let him start the "job"
    it's rare that redstars go broody so you will need a bator
    for under $100 you can get one with an egg turner which makes it much less work for you

    A Buff Orp or a Rhode Island Red rooster would be good choices.....good luck!!!

    PS - Red Stars are a "hybrid".....they are technically not a breed.
