The Sussex breed originated in Britain and is one of the oldest known poultry breeds, mentioned by the Romans at the time of their invasion of AD 43. It is a dual-purpose bird bred for both meat and egg production. Sussex have a calm and friendly temperament, are good layers and are ideal as attractive and productive backyard pets.
