Breed Details:
I very much enjoy my small flock of Speckled Sussex. They are among the most curious birds in my flock and full of personality. I get a light brown to brown egg each day from my girls. They are friendly and usually run to the door of the pen when they see me coming. My Sussex rooster is the quietest of all my roos and rarely crows. While he is sometimes over zealous with the girls, he has never shown any aggression towards any of us. Even my kids can walk up to him. I've had 2 of my girls go broody this spring, but I didn't let them set so I do not know wether they would make good mothers or not. When free ranging, they do quite well. Their feathers are always glossy and we enjoy watching them scratching for bugs. These are, by far, my most favorite breed for looks and for eggs.
