There were threads requesting Speckled Sussex pics last month, but I didn't have any good pics. Here they are now: my pretty pullet, the roo we're keeping, and his two hatchery brothers who are meeting their fate tomorrow.

I'd love to hear opinions on them, I tried to get good closeups of their feathering. These are from Estes and I will be trying to improve from here. I think they're nice-looking, but these are the first I've had, so I have little to compare to.

Particularly if someone thinks I've chosen the wrong roo, speak now! I think it's pretty obvious who the keeper is, though.

Please post your SS too, I'd love to see them.

I think, based on what I've read & seen, that keeper roo is the nicest feathered. The other two just look muddled to me.

Dolly's speckling seems pretty nice and regular for a hatchery girl, but again, I have never seen any other SS except in pics.

All opinions welcomed, thanks for looking!

Your birds are very pretty!! I don't know anything about the breed, so I can't help there. But I agree that the roo you are keeping looks the best.
I just bought 7 SS today.. I've wanted them for a while now, and I finally got my hands on some chicks

Definitely one of my favorite breeds!

Thanks Rio and Randy. I didn't get any replies for a while so I had kind of given up on this thread. Rio, good luck with your SS, don't forget to post pics later, I'd love to do comparisons.
