    Does anyone know any hatcheries that sell sexed Light Sussex?

    Sandhill does have them. They are straight run only though. The cold weather is also putting them far behind in their hatchings. No March hatches at all this year.

    I have a local breeder that does light sussex, in west WA. I ended up with a very nice cock from him.
    I know he dropped some breeds this year, though I don't know which. (he had about a dozen plus 3 turkey breeds last year)
    He doesn't vaccinate for marek's though and it's in my neighborhood(took out all but 2 of my chicks last summer, lab confirmed) so I haven't been back, as I can't afford a whole bottle of vacc. for the few chicks I buy.

    editL Oh, yeah they are straight run.

    Chicken Scratch Poutry sells Light Sussex pullets. I got one from them and she's really nice. The owners are very easy to deal with and very responsive to inquiries. I'm not a breeder, I only have hens for eggs and "yard art" so cannot attest to SOP adherence but "Poppy" is beautiful to me :)
