Gold Stars were developed in the 1950's by crossing a Rhode Island Red male with a Rhode Island White female for efficient brown egg production and ease of sexing. Male Gold Stars chicks are light yellow without any red, while the females have varying amount of red down. This slight difference in down color allows the hatchery to easily sex these chicks at day of hatch. Adult males are solid white and have a body type similar to a Rhode Island Red. Adult female have a very light red body appearance with white tails, wing tips, hackles and body undercover.
