A bid just closed a day or so ago on eggbid on a pair of Coronation Sussex. I know nothing about these chickens what is up with that breed.
Anyone know anything about them? Must be the next hot bird off the presses

There's a reason these little guys are so popular. They are pretty, sweet, comical, hardy in just about any climate, they love to jump in the mud and dig for worms in the rain like large fowl,...

My KCs are far better layers than my chickens, especially in the winter. I can turn them loose and know they are safe to free range without constant supervision as they are very diligent and alert...
They are very good birds. The only problem is that some of my birds fly over the fence. They mess up the garden, flowers, and plants. Though very good egg layers, and nice!

He is one of only a few people in the USA with them. They are EXTREMELY RARE. His stock was imported in to the US in 07 at a pretty hefty price tag.Adam, Memphis, TN

Here is a little more info on those birds from the person who imported them. I think the buyer on Eggbid got a deal compared to what the seller paid for them all totaled.

But do the math. I hear they are good layers. So a breeding pair produces 200 eggs per year, one hundred pairs, 60K first year. Piece a cake LOL. At a thousand dollars a pair 100 K. I am going to buy them all. Easy money.
I dont mean to poke fun either. If that is what people will pay then that is what they are worth to them.
I sure do like the birds thoughpost #8 of 915/18/09 at 3:00am
The Coronation Sussex are very beautiful and Paul has very nice birds that he imported.
We have the Coronation, Light and Buff from his imports and enjoy them very much.
