Wonderful chickens. Big birds, very attractive. Friendly and they come up to me and follow me round the garden. They go mad for sultanas - all four of them gobble them out of my hand. Bit of a frenzy! Eggs are really good. Out in all weathers. Alert and bright eyed and distinctive characters.
We've had our light Sussex hen, Sophie, for 7 years now and she's still giving us a lovely large brown egg every day. She's a wonderful pet, is happy to be handled and enjoys company.
My speckled Sussex are definitely my friendliest.I have a six month baby boy and he helps feed our tiny flock. The Sussex always stop, spread their wings a little, appear to kneel to be petted.
They also try coming in the house every day, peck on the back sliding glass door when they want something or to tell me they're turning in for the evening. Just love them
These stunning and eye catching birds certainly make an attractive member of any flock.Once calm , they can tolerate any handling but tend to flap if not handled properly . They are mostly timid and would not be seen pecking your other poultry.overall an nontactile yet eye catching member of your flock!
Lays beautiful eggs, has bossy confident persona. Not for the garden proud
Tilly, our speckled sussex is really friendly, great in the garden and hardy, she is lovely!!!
