planning on getting these sussex hens coming spring, are they good layers, any experience?
Yes, they are one of my favorite breeds. Hardy, easy to keep and I find they don't eat as much as other breeds.
I had a hen that laid eggs until her death at 6 years old.
Medium sized, pinkish, light brown eggs.
I have one who is usually in the nest every day unless she's molting. However, I find she is a chow hound and will range far and wide, searching for food. Nelda is a little piggie and I was glad I didn't have an entire flock of them. Her eggs are still small and she's two years old.
