    They don't look like Speckled Sussex to me. Speckled Sussex chicks are darker, with more prominent stripes.

    So I think I worked it out. I found the original breeder that sold.the eggs to the person I bought the eggs from they are rir/buff orpington cross.

    If that's what they are, the rir/bo cross, they're nice looking birds from what I've seen here. It seems to be a pretty popular mix and you get nice sized orange-ish birds.
    I agree they're not right for SS chicks.

    They don't look like my SS chickens looked like as chicks. These were what mine looked liked:

    the wing feathers look like yours just the brown is a bit lighter. the beaks are the same color so are the feet. hell i dont know. maybe they are sussex mix. the person i got them from swears they are pure.

    Your chicks have yellow legs, I thought Sussex had white legs from the start.

    These are classic Speckled Sussex chicks...yours are not obviously. RIR/BO ought to be good layers though not Speckled Sussex that you bought.
