    I want Speckeld Sussex and don't want to buy from a hatchery...prefer naturally nested to incubator hatched. Willing to drive to pick up near Coeur d'Alene Idaho/Spokane WA
    Thanks!

    Hi, I live in North Idaho, too. I don't know if you attended the North Idaho Fair last August but there was a gal there who had a pen set up with Speckled Sussex. That was the first time I had ever seen them in person before. After seeing your post I wish I had gotten some info from her. Maybe she will be there this year but August is long time to wait![​IMG]
    I'm on the waiting list for Speckled Sussex hatching eggs at Superior Farms.

    Thanks Carolyn!
    I think they'll be a good dual bird for our area (we'll see how the combs winter)...if not, on to Chanteclers...
    I will give the superintendent a call...maybe she can put me in touch!!! I was the one with the Runner ducks, Tufted geese and the Blue Andalusian Roo (and pigs, and sheep and llamas...) didn't get to spend a lot of time in the poultry barn! I'm glad you had your eyes open! If I find out who it is, we might get you closer to your eggs too![​IMG]
    In the meantime, if anybody knows of any close by...Carolyn and I are looking!

    I saw all of your beautiful birds!
    I have pictures of my daughter standing next to your ducks and rooster...that is so funny!
    The gal with the SS had this BIG pen on the floor with a rooster, hens and even some chicks.
    Dang!
