    I have heard that the breed is a very good layer. Is that a long term layer or a short term layer.

  4. I'll be getting some new babies the end of this month (yippeeeee) and in that order, are two Speckled Sussex. I have really admired that breed for a while, but was unable to order any last spring. This time, I was able to get the last hatch of the season. I can't wait! [​IMG]

    Here is one of my little Speckled Sussex.. Her name is Slobber. Named due to the slobber job my golden retriever did to her when she was 2 days old.

    Glad you said that. I have some friends that are gardners in a major way..they love to come over and get my manure, and the eggs. when I mentioned raising their own they said, oh no, it's too much work and I don't feel like taking care of them on a dialy basis...I just felt like, well in that case you don't deserve any manure or eggs....but it's their loss I look at it. Not mine. I guess some ppl. just aren't cut out for that pleasure. I am not a plant person to an extreme so I guess they look at me the same way. After all, that's what makes everyone different. Thank God..lol
