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 the original Smith fowl. They were first produced here in 2006 and have been very well received at their first shows in 2011. As with our Light Sussex, our Silver Sussex are a smaller sized fowl, officially called a bantam, but for most everyday poultry lovers a bantam is a small bird. But not 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.
