    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. I've never had Buff Sussex, but I believe that they lay cream or light brown colored eggs.

    Welcome to BYC. Generally they lay light brown eggs. Egg color may vary from strain to strain and from bird to bird.

    You may have to pose this to the Sussex thread to get your best answer. I think the buff is pretty rare in the states. I assume the breed lays a similar egg across the colors? Our 2 Speckled lay a very light buff brown egg. Some days it is almost light enough to be called tinted. They've only been laying a few months so size has been a little small - 1.75-1.9 oz with an occasional 2.0. I imagine the 2.0 oz large size will become more common as they get a little older. They will be 1 year in April.

    Our Sussex eggs are the light ones in the middle and are average color. We do get some lighter ones.
