SO we got a dozen hens in the Spring, one of the Sussex turned out to be a rooster. Unfortunately, our bird dog got into the yard unsupervised and we lost five. We want to get more and while my original plan was to replenish with new chicks from the hatchery every 2-3 years, I'm thinking I'd rather hatch a few chicks every year and keep a self-replenishing flock. To that end I was going to order a dozen Speckled Sussex hens from Meyer and breed them with this roo. I'm not interested in showing, but would like to have a decent backyard flock of Sussex for eggs/meat and maybe to sell a few chicks every year. I think this guy is pretty good looking, but I really don't know thing one about what he's supposed to look like. Here he is at 22 weeks; Thanks for your comments/suggestions!
