    I have a beautiful show quality Light sussex rooster but his light hens are not laying just yet. I decided to throw him in with my speckled sussex girls just for something fun to do. Does anyone know what colors the offspring will be?

    Heres a pic of the rooster just for fun :eek:)[​IMG]

    well you'll get a bunch of poorly colored project birds. Do you want to be known for that? See the BYC thread "
    Anyone ever crossed light sussex to speckled or red sussex? "
    about what colors you will get. I hope when you rehome the chicks, be sure to tell the new owners they are mixed colors and will not breed true.
    Best,
    Karen
