Silver Sussex Bantams
The Silver Sussex large fowl was first developed in Australia by Peter Smith many years ago, however very few breeders perservere with the Silver variety today. Silver Sussex are dramatic looking, head, neck and saddle being white striped with black, tail black and breast black with white feather shafts and edging. Thighs are dark grey with faint edging and the under colour is grey black, fading to white at the feather base.
The Morton Estate Silver Sussex are a total outcross to any other silver sussex that you will find in Australia, they are not bred down from large Sussex and do not contain any large fowl genetics. They were first produced here in 2006 and have been very well received in the show pens, as you will see from our show results further down the page.
Our Silver Sussex are a medium sized fowl, officially called a bantam, but for most people a bantam is a small bird. Don't be fooled by a Sussex Bantam, they are very similar to the common IsaBrown layer hen but with much more eye appeal and personality ! They make excellent broodies as they have wonderful maternal qualities.
