The Black Star also known as "Black Sex Link" is the result of crossing two heritage purebred poultry standard chicken breeds together, a Rhode Island Red chicken rooster and the Barred Rock chicken hen. The baby chicks for sale from this original cross are color sexable chicks- the grown roosters have faded barred with light colored neck hackle feathers, grown pullets or hens are black with red mixed in their neck hackle feathers. This makes for a great choice for your backyard with a 99.5% sexing guarantee. This hybrid chicken breed makes for very vigorous chicks, rugged brown egg laying hens and good cockerel chicken fryers.
These are not a show chicken but they are great for raising hens for eggs and pet chickens for the backyard or farm. Many customers like the Black Star chicken for raising free range chicken eggs or organic free range chickens. Be sure to reserve an order for these Black Star baby chicks for sale. NOTE: These baby chicks look a little small, but their short chick fuzz is deceiving as baby chicks.
