Speckled Sussex is a dual purpose medium size bird in the large class. They are an inquisitive, friendly bird that loves to go broody, so no incubator needed. They're good for both meat and eggs laying 4 to 5 large eggs each week.
This breed originated in England near AD 43, making them one of the oldest known breeds. The oldest and most common coloring is the speckled breed that has dark brown or mahogany colored feathers, and some black and blue feathers with white ends making the speckles show throughout their plumage.
