These are some of the sweetest hens and oh so beautiful! I’m only familiar with the Speckled Sussex, but the other varieties of Sussex are beautiful too. This is a heavy English heritage breed. They are intelligent and make excellent pets. They love the company of people and will follow you around. They are comfortable as dominant hens, with minimal aggression. A Speckled Sussex hen adds an eye-catching splash to your chicken yard. Good layer of light brown eggs.
