Speckled Sussex Started Pullets


This hen is sure to be a family favorite. Besides being stunningly beautiful, I think the Speckled Sussex is one of the friendliest, most people friendly, and curious of the back yard chicken breeds.  And they top it off by being excellent egg layers as well.


The feather pattern of the speckled Sussex is quite stunning. The base color is a rich and dark mahogany. Each feather is white-tipped and separated from the mahogany by a black bar with iridescent overtones of green. The pattern gets more vibrant and outstanding every year too. This coloration pattern gives the bird a great camouflage when out free-ranging.


Speckled Sussex have a very even temperament – they are calm, friendly, and docile. They will follow you around the garden, talking to you if they think you have some treats for them!


Curious by nature, they can sometimes get themselves into mischief, but they are very resourceful birds. They will tolerate confinement well, but if they are allowed to free-range, they will excel at it, reduce your feed bill substantially, and remove pests from the garden.


The Speckled Sussex is an excellent layer, averaging 4-5 large, brown eggs per week.
