Speckled Sussex are moderate layers. A gentle breed, you can tame them easily by feeding them by hand.
Available at several different ages (see below). The hen in the photo shows how they look once they reach maturity.
The Sussex breed comes from the old county of Sussex in England. One of the oldest English breeds, it comes in several different color variations. The Speckled is the oldest pattern and the speckles were developed to help the bird hide from predators by blending in with the low bushes typical of the area.
Originally developed as meat birds, they are dual purpose bird laying between 180-200 eggs per year. The eggs tend to be tinted toward the brown, but are not darkly colored.
A fairly docile breed, they tame easily by hand feeding.
