Hi,


I'm looking for  Speckled or Buff Sussex laying or POL hen in Shropshire. Would consider any large fowl, dual purpose hen that has a tendency to going broody but these are the bird by OH would really like. ;D


Thanks,
Kate

I have a couple of 2014 Speckled Sussex hens that are part of a large order for POLs placed last Autumn.  The buyer is very keen on Laced Wyandottes so may want most of the order made up of that breed, in which case the SS will be available.  They are home bred and raised.  I should hear more by the end of this week.  We're in NE Herefordshire.

Buyer has now decided to increase the order by 40%, which is going to take all my spare stock.  I'll be setting eggs as soon as we finish lambing and, if all goes well, should have hatching eggs, chicks and growers available as we get towards summer.  The flock is closed and the SS a good utility strain and very well marked.
