Pros: friendly, excellent foragers
Cons: don't lay as often as hybrids
Very friendly birds and amazing foragers. Not flighty if regularly handled, but there is some variation in personalities as with all birds. Lay 2 eggs every 3 days when young. They start laying lightly tinted (pale brown) eggs at around 6 months old, same as many other breeds. This is a rare breed which is probably impossible to find outside of UK so if you have a similar looking bird, then it is likely to be silver Sussex.
