Sussex chickens are a heavy breed developed by the English more than a century ago. In England, the Sussex is a very popular meat bird. This dual purpose breed lays light brown eggs and is an excellent forager, making it a great free range option. The Speckled Sussex are a calm and beautiful breed and are a great bird to show. They also tend to go broody and make wonderful mothers. This variety is called speckled because of the white spangles on the ends of its otherwise dark mahogany colored feathers.
Average mature weights: roosters 9 lbs., hens 7 lbs.
