    I saw some great photos of light sussex in a British poultry magazine and was wondering if that variety is available in the US. I'm interested in the breed, but not in the speckled variety. If anyone has other sussex varieties please share some info.

    If you are looking for sussex like you see in the UK go through a breeder and not a hatchery. There are quite a number of breeders in the US and Canada.

    I'm glad you asked about this Picco, as I'm interested in the light sussex as well - I think they're very pretty. I don't know why they wouldn't be popular in this country . . .
