Light Sussex Chicken

The light Sussex Chicken is a variation of the Sussex Chicken Breed.  It is regonised by both the UK Poultry Club and the American Poultry Assosiation as a pure breed.  The Light Sussex has a white body with a black tail and black in the flight feathers and wing coverts; the neck hackles are white with black striping.

The Sussex was traditionally reared as a table bird for meat production. In the early part of the twentieth century it was one of the principal breeds kept for this purpose, until it was displaced by modern industrial hybrid lines. Hens lay some 180–200 tinted eggs per year
