Speckled Sussex Chicken

Speckled Sussex Chickens are an old English breed developed over a hundred years in Sussex County, England. The Speckled Sussex is one of the best possible choices for a backyard chicken because of its beautiful coat of feathers, curious and mellow personalities, and excellent dual purpose utility.

The Sussex is a medium sized heavy breed of chicken with a long deep body that is excellent for fattening. It has pinkish white skin and will dress well for the table. The Speckled Sussex is a dependable layer of medium to large sized brown eggs. It is a heavy breed and not a good flyer so it is easily fenced and handles confinement well. This hardy breed will continue to lay strong throughout the colder months of the year.

The beautiful plumage of the Speckled Sussex is not only pleasing to the eye, but it helps to camouflage the bird from potential predators such as fox, coyotes, possums, and raccoons. They will molt every year and their coat will fill in with more speckled feathers than before, so that this beautiful bird gets even more colorful each year. The Speckled Sussex is a useful and beautiful addition to any backyard flock.

I liked it August 19, 2015
Reviewer: Maria Casey from Merrill, MI United States  
I am very pleased with the chickens arrived. I had females and straight run chickens in the same order. All were marked. Packaging was nice and had thoughtful instructions. The box itself looked better then McM's. Will order again.

Speckled sussex chicks August 10, 2015
Reviewer: Ashley from Clarksburg, WV United States  
I ordered 7 hens and 2 roosters along with 7 RIR hens. Sent a total of 17 chicks. One dead on arrival. Rest were weak put sugar in the water along with some electrolytes. Lost 3 more over night. This morning most look active and good but looks like we might lose 2 more. I hope we don't lose any more. This is my 4th order from efowl. The first two orders I got chicks and ducks not one died. My 3rd order I lost a total of 6 guineas left with 12 now.  Now this order I'm losing chicks. I don't know what's going on. I will probably will order again but if my next order has a lot of loss in it then I may find another source.
