I recently picked up 20 meat chicks at TSC and I also have a number of Light Sussex that I've raised from my own stock. I was going to compare the two to show similarities and differences, but ya know what? The meaties just DON'T seem to have personalities and as far as similarities go, both breeds are ... well ... yellow. I'm hoping to put a few CX's under a broody hen I have outside, because maybe then they'll acquire some kind of interest factor. As it stands right now...there's zip going on with them. They eat, they drink, they lie down (usually in their water bowl). A little disappointed when, over in the next brooder, their Sussex 'cousins' run around, fall over, peck and jump at the greenery, act like happy goofballs etc.
