A little bit about... Amber Stars are a Rhode Island based hybrid. They are the Super Star of the hybrid breeds that were created to match the brown layers abilities but a bird with softer feathering so they look less haggered during moult making them ideal for a free-range set up where the flock is on show. The Amber Star was created to basically be the reverse of the Ginger Spice so cream with ginger flecks whereby the Ginger Spice is ginger with cream flecks.
Character.... Ambers are docile hens which are very easily tamed making them a popular choice for first time chicken keepers. They adapt well to most set ups and mix well within a flock of different breeds.
Appearance.... Ambers are a pretty hen which are cream coloured with splashes of ginger flecks (they remind me of a cappucino, the froth with chocolate sprinkles) Colouration varies with each hen.
Eggs.... Ambers reward their keepers with a brown eggs of up to 300 in their first year of lay.
