Pros: outgoing, friendly
I have one Speckled Sussex hen. She was given to me to replace an EE from the hatchery that we thought wouldn't make it. Thankful the EE made it and in the meantime I got the best chicken ever! Zillah is super friendly and chatty, likes to be held, and is the first one to come when I call. She is absolutely the friendliest of all my chickens and craves attention. She is not laying yet as she is too young but I would keep her if she never laid an egg in her life. I thought maybe her personality was an exception, but it seems that most SS are super friendly. She is a bit greedy and pecks the fire out of me if I'm not looking, but I can overlook those things. I now have a new saying thanks to her tendency to peck: "Keep your friends close and your chickens closer." (As in "Hold your Speckled Sussex if you don't want to be pecked.") I would absolutly get more of this breed.
