    The only source I know of for red Sussex is Sandhill Preservation. I don't think white Sussex can be found in the US.

    Red Sussex can be found in Sandhill as she mentioned above. I am not impressed with them but they are working on it even it has been five years ago. I had one that had yellow legs and the other one had white legs.

    Thank you all for your help. I have some started Light Sussex from non-Australian lines
    coming this Spring. I think this will be a good color with which I can work.
    Merry Christmas,
    Karen in western PA.
