    Does anybody know if Coronation Sussex chickens are dual-purpose birds?






    I am trying to decide between raising either Barred Rocks or Coronation Sussex.

    Well, I thought I could hatch and sell some of the sussex chicks since they cost about $10-$15 each and make a little profit while at the same time getting meat and eggs. But I wasn't sure if they were dual-purpose. Are all sussex varieties dual-purpose?
