    I am coming to the final stages of my coop and now considering what types of sussex chickens to go for, I dont know what I want exactly so think I should go for a mixture of spotted and light and dark. I am a bit confused about what are the main breeds and what the differences are. I would like egg producing ones mainly and I guess the less broody ones would be better. Advice welcome xxxx

    I've only had the Speckled Sussex, and LOVE them!!! The hens are sweet and friendly, although I did have a difficult rooster. Mary
