A British table bird that is docile and easily tamed

Bred originally as a table bird, hens will also lay a quantity of good-quality eggs, which makes it a useful dual-purpose breed for the kitchen garden and also commercially, as Sussex crosses make fine producers of both meat and eggs. Calm and docile, it’s a good chicken for the beginner and easily tamed. Colours are speckled, brown, buff, light (Columbian), red, silver, and white.
