Speckled Sussex Chickens Details

Day Old Speckled Sussex Baby Chicks

Chicks hatching February to August.

The Speckled Sussex Chicken is a beautiful and tame breed, with dark, mahogany-colored feathers sprinkled with bright, white specks.

Production: The Speckled Sussex is usually thought of as a good layer, laying an admirable number of eggs - about 200 per year. The Speckled Sussex makes excellent meat birds as well.

Temperament: One of the many reasons that the Sussex has been popular for so long is that it is a calm, docile breed.

History: The Sussex is an ancient breed, believed to have originated in England around the time of the Roman conquest. There are many varieties, but the Speckled Sussex is one of the prettiest and most popular.

Until the introduction and burgeoning popularity of the modern Cornish Cross, the Sussex was the most popular breed for meat in England. It does have white skin, which is often not appealing to consumers in the United States.

Today, many people choose the Speckled Sussex because it makes an excellent pet. People who have children find that the Speckled Sussex works out well because of its gentle nature.

Colors: Dark, mahogany-colored feathers with bright white speckles cover the entire body. A bright red comb and wattle give the bird a cheerful, alert appearance. They also have white legs and feet in addition to the white skin.

Status: American Livestock Breeds Conservancy Conservation Status: The ALBC classifies the Sussex (all varieties) as recovering.

Body Type: Deep and broad, with a tendency to put on fat easily.

Standard Weights: Rooster 9 lbs, Hen 7 lbs, Cockerel 7.5 lbs, Pullet 6 lbs

Classification: American Poultry Association Class: English
