Light Sussex pullets for sale
This is Karen in Ligonier, PA. 15658-9226 . I breed Light Sussex. I have been raising some real nice ones now for 7 months. I have 6 pullets I need to place as I downsize the flock for overwintering. These birds have never been off my property and never been sick. I do have an NPIP number. These April-hatched pullets are near point of lay and should be starting to lay in Nov. Someone is already laying but I don't know which one, smile. My birds were hatched April 1st, 15th and 28th. The purebred breeding was a 1/2 bro to 1/2 sis breeding with a common sire. These pullets fail in critical show points as their silhouette is more narrow in the rear like a layer. I am striving for a "roaster" silhouette. Their dam is my best layer. It is not uncommon for her to lay 2 eggs in 36 hours. She is molting now and laying every day right thru the molt. These pullets need to go into an egg flock. They should not be bred from as they are inbred in their genes. The bird in my avatar is the 1/2 sister of their dam.
Tho it cost me much more than this to raise them, I will let them go for 1 quan. 50 lb. bag of Southern States Breeder Layer per bird ( available at Agway). We do have a local Agway here in Ligonier which carries this feed. You must pick up. I cannot ship at this price because it is dirt cheap for birds like this. Their quality is the same as a quality-bred purebred pet puppy. First come, first serve.
You can see pics of the birds here. http://s1278.photobucket.com/user/ELSussex/library/?sort=3&page=1
Junior is the sire. The hen raising the chicks in the coop is the 1/2 sister in my avatar. The dam of the "for sale" pullets is the pullet on the left in the picture captioned "Push Me -Pull You".
