Light Sussex Chickens
The light Sussex has a white body with a black tail and black wing tips, its neck is white striped with black and has a very striking appearance. The Sussex chicken is an alert, docile breed that can adapt to any surrounding, they are comfortable in both free range or confined spaces. There is a bantam version at 1/4 size.
The Sussex was bred to be a dual purpose bird and is one of the most productive breeds of poultry. They lay large eggs that are cream to light brown in colour. Another reason for the great popularity of the Light Sussex is that the offspring can be sexed at day-old.
