Our Light Sussex have been complimented by many a poultry fanciers. Their mere size and markings make them impossible to overlook. They are inquisitive and confident yet docile and approachable. These are a great choice for backyard, barnyard, production, pet or show.

Both sexes exhibit similar markings, white base plumage, black tails and wing tips, black striped neck and accented with red comb and wattles.

Sussex are named after the historic County of Sussex found in the South East of England, where the breed is believed to date back to ancient times of the Roman invasion of Britain.

All the Sussex varieties have white skin and are excellent for meat production. Chicks mature quickly for a heavy breed and their carcass is larger overall, with noticeably larger legs, than what you see on today’s commercial broilers.

The breed in general, especially the Light variety, has been improved upon to develop good lay qualities of large, cream to light brown tinted eggs and will produce well through the winter. However, they have
a propensity to get broody during the warmer summer months.

Sussex are good foragers and have a docile disposition. The Light variety is recognized by the APA but remains rare here in the United States. However, their popularity is growing for not only their dual purpose production traits but also for their visual interest and
personality.

Truly, these are one of the best all around breeds and our bloodline is
from True North Heritage Hatchery of Canada.
