The Speckled Sussex is a pure breed that was developed over time by combing a number of breeds... Your chicks don't really look like speckled sussex...
they have the pink feet but too light coloring so could be half sussex

the lady i got them from didnt have any speckled sussex. she said they where a cross between something (i cant remember what) and a white something or other... she had a pen with all white hens and a rooster i think that was white with black head....

That's no speckled Sussex.
Speckled Sussex start out red with huge patches of white, THEN turn into mottling months later.



You sure about the parentage though? They look kind of like Blue Wheatens or Creles or something.

Illia,
i bought them form this lady in Yelm, i went out to her house in the first place for some BLRW chicks (which i really think are splashes) anyways. we went out to the pens. she had a bunch of runs with 3-4 hens in each and a rooster of the same breed. in one of the runs she had those white ones, and when we went back up to the house to get the chicks, we got the BLRW and thsoe two where in there with 3 all black chicks, so we took the two little guys with the three BLRW's. I asked her what they where and she said something and a white something or other cross. I only remember seeing the white roo and hens. she also told me that they where all straight run and no hatchery stock. so idk....

Later pics would really help, but also pics in less lighting (or not so bright on the feathers so I can see 'em better) help as well.



Whatever they are, they likely have either Sussex, Orpington, or Marans behind them.
