    I think these birds are just plain beautiful, and I know that sussex are really inquisitive, nice birds. Does anybody have them or know anybody who would be willing to sell hatching eggs or chicks?



    thanks a lot! - pat

    I have light Sussex, some split chicks and I will be picking up a coronation rooster this weekend.

    I don't have any to sell at this time.

    They are amazing birds. They follow me around like puppies. They have no fear or worry with my two dogs. We all go on walks around the yard together. They are just one big happy family.
    I have one of the splits who flies up out of the brooder coop every time I open the door so he can sit on my hand and be scratched. They instigate this contact , not me.
    I have never had poultry this friendly or trusting.

    We have Coronation Sussex, but it is too hot to ship right now.

    I have a pair of splits from BluePoultry and they are very nice birds. No discoloration in the white, they are bright white and huge birds. He is a very nice man too. Great to deal with. Super healthy birds.

    I have to agree that Justin @ Blue Poultry was great to me as well.

    Big Blue how much do you sell them for? Blue Poultry responded but i'm not sure if i want to spend 250 for a pair.

    Quote:I don't see getting them much cheaper than that. Was the $250 for splits or pure Coronations?

    They may have been splits. What's the difference between them?
