Coronation Sussex originated in England where it was developed to honor the Coronation of King Edward VIII who ascended the throne briefly in 1936, after his father’s death. However Edward abdicated, before the formal coronation, to marry a divorced socialite and his brother George took the throne.

This variety is rare both in England as well as the United States. While unique and interesting, like Edward, this variety is not yet recognized by the American Poultry Association.

In appearance the Coronation Sussex is very similar to the Light variety with the black being replaced by a light pigeon blue often called lavender as a more befitting color to honor a king.

The Coronation Sussex is an extremely gentle, calm, curious bird which makes them a good choice for pets.

This large breed variety is a good choice dual purpose bird. They are a good layer of large light brown eggs and make a good winter layer. Their white skin enhances the table presentation. Sussex will have larger legs and smaller breast than found on modern Cornish Cross commercial broilers.

Both the Coronation and Light Sussex are clearly the noted favorites amongst the poultry enthusiasts familiar with our stock and casual
observers alike. We are confident they too will become topic of discussion and a point of visual interest in your flock.
