Speckled Sussex Chickens UK.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

Does anyone know of any Speckled Sussex chicken suppliers in Lincolnshire or the surrounding counties? I know they're rarer than their sisters the Light sussex but I wasn't prepared to have such a difficult time finding a breeder!

Any help will be greatly appreciated, looking forward to starting a new flock. :)

Hi welcome-byc.gif

I've just done a search and can't find any near to you idunno.gif I did find these ~ http://chartleychucks.co.uk/pure-breeds.htm
There in Staffordshire hmm.png You might have to go down the hatching eggs route if your not wanting to travel to collect birds. As they are a rare breed over here there does not seem to be many about.

Good luck, I hope you find the Sussex you would like fl.gif

Hi!

 

Thanks! I think the hatching route will be the best way for me, which is a new experience altogether - one I must learn anyhow. So I'll give the learning centre on here a good read on incubating and hatching my own eggs, ones that I can buy from that site you have supplied.

 

Thank you :).

As an update to this post, I have gotten in touch with them and reserved 4 hens and a roo from them. I'm happy to go and pick them up myself.

 

Here's to a future flock of Speckled Sussex chickens :):fl
