Thread Starter 
Thanks for the help! That's what I was afraid of ,a roo. I'm just scared of him turning out mean. I have a three year old that lives the chickens but I'd hate to see him get scared of them. We'll just have to see how he turns out.
Thanks again everyone!

i was under teh impression that the light sussex and colubian rock where the same bird but for USA and UK obviosly with different standas for show purposes

 

so i decided to look it up and i cannot find any information that the UK against USA version has different leg colour

 

the Sussex was bred orginally in Sussex UK and even then i cant find any reference to pink or yellow feet

Plymouth Rocks and Sussex are different breeds, Sussex originated in England and Rocks originated in the US. In the UK it may be different, but in the APA SOP Sussex have pink legs and Plymouth Rocks have yellow legs.

sorry i think my posts have confused you

 

i was not refering to a plymouth rock

 

i was refering to a columbian rock which is the USA name for the UK bred Light Sussex

Columbian is a variety that Plymouth Rocks come in, just like Barred, Blue, Buff, Black, ect.

 

I've never heard Columbian Rock being refered to as a UK bred Light Sussex.

Sussex have pink legs and Rocks have yellow legs. Also notice the difference in the body? There are US bred Light Sussex, they have a separate SOP than Plymouth Rocks.
