    $7 for pullets

    These Speckled Sussex are from Cackle Hatchery That flock is thouroughly tested and our birds have not shown any sign of disease, but our flock is too small and new to have a testing program.

    They are Large/Standard fowl, not bantams.

    They are 20 weeks old, raised in a pasture situation, non-medicated but not organic feeds. They are reasonably friendly (underfoot while working in the pen) but not hand-fed or anything. I think there would be no problem taming them down farther.

    I am not an exhibitor in major shows, so I do not know how close to APA standard they are. I suspect the hatchery standard (lay well, show poorly), but we have enjoyed their pretty appearance and general personality. Pictures will be sent if you PM me.

    The pullets are just starting to lay, giving us pullet-sized med brown eggs.

    We'd love to keep them all, but have more pullets than we need. I'd love to get these working girls a new home with more space for the winter.

    We are 20 minutes North of La Crosse WI. Pick-up or meet in the area, we will not ship.
