Jubilee Orpington or Speckled Sussex?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Bought this hen as a baby chick thinking she was a Speckled Sussex, but just found out from the breeder that there may have been a mix up, and perhaps she is a Jubilee Orpington. Either way, she's a beautiful sweet hen. I'd just like to know what she is.

Today, she laid her first egg (egg from hen in question on right; egg on left from Black Sex Link for comparison.)

She is a Sussex, slightly to much white for the standard but her body type is gorgeous :drool

NPIP in MS, reorganizing breed choices and projects.

I agree; Speckled Sussex. :o)

Agree she's a Sussex. Orpingtons are round and fluffy, like walking basketballs.

Speckled Sussex.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

Merry Christmas!
Had a little Christmas surprise this morning...
our egg producer is not the speckled after all...it's our 4.5 month old Buff Orpington. Caught her in the act - early bloomer!
Thanks for all the feedback!
