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.
