About Sussex ChickensAbout Sussex Chickens

Sussex chickens produce a high-yield of eggs, even into the winter months, though at a slower pace. They also make for a good show bird as their easy-going temperament makes them ideal for beginning fanciers.  

Sussex chickens are very calm and quite friendly. The hens are excellent mothers, becoming broody when the need arises. Since the Sussex is so calm at all times, even around other Sussex, it is completely manageable to have more than one roosters living together in the same space without conflict.

Sussex chickens are a heavy bird with a broad, deep breast and a rectangular body shape. Their legs are a pale, pinkish white color while their ear-lobes are bright red, same as their medium-sized single comb. They stand medium-high and have tails that have low carriages, spread well with medium long main feathers within the tail.  

They are rather simple to upkeep due to their calm nature. They aren't keen on flying, so providing them with a wide-open space to roam without a roof or high fence is not a problem. Even better, because their temperament makes them lack aggression even between roosters, keeping an entire flock together is no trouble at all.
