    Let me start by saying that I did not need any more chickens but I found 5 hens for sale not too far from my house.

    A student hatched some eggs for a school project last year and now that school has started again he has no time to look after them.

    He was told they are Sussex chickens but I am not sure. Is there a breed called a Yellow Sussex?

    They are about 8 months old and are laying a light brown egg.

    Thanks for your help.

    They look a lot like a red sex-link but I could be wrong. Hopefully an expert will pick it up from here!

    Sussex have pearl/white legs, and other attributes. So, I am going with some kind of sex link or crossed there after.

    Thanks for your help every one.

    Having fresh eggs every morning is great!
