Pros: Gentle, great layers
Cons: Hatchery roos can be aggressive
Speckled Sussex are among my favorite breeds. Besides being gorgeous eye-candy, (and they get more white with every molt) they are wonderful layers of medium to large sized light brown eggs. Personality wise-they are some of the most laid-back, calm, sweet birds I've ever owned. They have an almost constant flow of soft chatter as they follow you around to see what you are up to. Wonderful birds, great layers, and beautiful to boot.
