    These are absolutely gorgeous birds. The blue feathers are much nicer in feel and colroation than the lavender. No more split lavender feathers. This is a treasure for anyone looking for big healthy Sussex.

    Quote:Yes the feathering is much stronger and more color variations, from a dove grey to a violet blue...

    Chicks will be white at first. [​IMG]
    Then they will either be blue feathered or black (Coronation or Light Sussex)

    Black x Black = 100% Black
    Black x Blue = 50% Black, 50% Blue [​IMG]

    Blue x Blue = 50% Blue, 25% Black and 25% Splash

    Splash x Black = 100% Blue

    Splash x Blue = 50% Splash and 50% Blue

    Splash x Splash = 100% Splash

    Whats really nice is eventually you will get a almost all white Sussex (SPLASH)
