    Thanks.

    Mine are from a breeder near Charlottesville, VA named Susan Dawson. I think this is the only breed she raises.

    Nice looking chickens!

    I am actually looking for Speckled Sussex hens but they are very difficult to find! A breeder may have them in the summer and the other one is selling his a a "straight run" this month but I can only have hens...

    I love my SS...I have to be careful not to step on them tho because they're always underfoot.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    If you are near Charlottesville, VA you can get some from this same line of birds.
