American Stars have striking coloration. Hens are ginger red with each feather laced in blue or glossy black.
American Star chicks are little calico creatures--gold, black, yellow, red, white, and brown. The black and yellow eyeliner worn by some chicks is especially cute (it can be seen in the photo of the sleeping chicks).
American Stars are excellent layers of large brown eggs. The hens are wonderful foragers.
If you are looking for the Blue Laced Red Wyandotte's color pattern but want chicks you know will be females, the American Star is a great option.
