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.
