    I have Speckled Sussex and love them. I want to get another rooster in the spring so I can breed them again. They are among my favorites and some of my best layers.

    I have 20 females and 3 males, they are not show quality or anything, gottem from Ideal, they are really calm and quiet, and not scared of much, they grow a little slower it seems, but this is my first time raising them, so far so good, we will see how they progress!!

    I have a pair of spotted that we got at a show this past fall. I LOVE them. Ginger is giving us about 5 eggs a week and Rocky is a big, sweet boy.

    Will be ordering more from Meyer in a few days. Along with some Buckeyes, Delawares and Dominiques.

    Hoping to eventually breed some spotted for our own production.
