I got my sussex last October. Not a single egg from them til about April. They were bullied by some mean white layers, and had pretty bad fowl pox through December-January, but still... Seems to be their trend. They're finishing up a molt, so I'm thinking with a little protein and a little light maybe I can get enough to full my last two orders, give the pullets a little jump start, and then let everyone rest for the winter.
