    But I know what jubilee looks like and I know what a sussex looks like, so look up speckled sussex in google.

    Instead of making it an image, make it a link. I copied and pasted it to my address bar and it worked. [​IMG]

    Speckled is one of the colorings of Sussex chickens. I like it, it is different in its markings. The speckle is where the red feathers end in a black bar separating the white tip from the red. The best feathers will have no bleeding of white into red or the other way. My roo just feathered out and I learned that the wings have quite a bit of white on them. I had clipped his wings quite young, before the white was very evident. If you have girls, my pullet laid about 5 eggs a week until molt. Nice pretty girls. I have added 6 more to the flock.
