    Where is the best place, breeder, or hatchery to get nice speckled sussex from? Obviously this is for next spring since I doubt any are available this time of year. We live in MN so the less the chicks have to travel the better.

    Later edit: I see that Welp carries them and appear they are available. Any experience with the chicks from Welp?

    X-Treme Gamebirds is a small hatchery that still has Speckled Sussex pullets according to their website. I ordered from them two months ago and now have two [we ordered five total] pullets with me. The other three are at different homes, but were all sexed accurately as well. They're very pretty little girls and are very sweet too! Every time I put my hand in, they run over to see what I have.
    Suzanne and her husband are also VERY nice to deal with.

    Good luck with your chicks!

    Oh, and where are you in MN? My family lives in Plymouth and Edina, outside of Minneapolis. [​IMG]

    Thanks. I'll check them out.

    We live just north of the cities by Princeton. So not far from your family. [​IMG]
