The platinum sussex is a pure breed bird and has stunning pure platinum or lavender plumage with white lavender lacing around the neck and tail. These are lovely natured birds that will bring you years of laying and backyard company. These birds will begin laying at approx 7-9 months of age and will produce around 250 eggs per year. Most bigger purebreeds will cease laying around 5 years.
The Sussex are a large breed and owning one that is handraised is like having a puppy in the yard. Lovable, fun and very loyal. We love the Sussex breed. Please note that City Chicks sell their pure breeds at an age from 8 weeks to 16 weeks depending on demand. We interpret the term 'Young Hen' as a pullet under 12 months of age and use the wording so as not to confuse clients who do not understand the term - pullet. The birds are sold at this age as they are perfectly suited to growing with your family and based on demand.
Please call to confirm availability as our main breeding season is July - April.
