Our light sussex hens remind us of elegant ladies in bustle dresses.
This classic breed is a brilliant all-rounder: great layer, excellent table bird (cockerels) with striking looks and friendly temperament. The progeny are early to feather, fast growing and quick to mature. The young pullets and cockerels look mighty fine in their stunning crisp, white plumage with their striking black neck hackles and jet black tails. If crossed with ‘gold’ males the light sussex hens will produce sex-liked chicks - very handy if you want to tell your pullets from your cockerels from hatch day. Our light sussex girls have laid consistently well for us; they lay a good sized egg and egg colour is usually tinted. They come into the lay early each season (late winter) and lay consistently well till they come into the moult in autumn. Light sussex are inclined to go broody like many of the other heavy breeds and they make attentive mothers. We find them a delightful breed to keep.
safe arrival of 6 heritage pullets- delayed by a week because of the forecast storm. Fionna displayed her usual concern for her precious cargo.Some worries when consignment was not there in the morning as I had expected but they were offloaded safely in Wellington at noon beautifully packaged with spare food and drink and none the worse for a 4 hour plus ferry trip :-) Many thanks again great service!

This product is exactly what I'd been looking for. So easy to set up on my own, looks great, blends into the environment perfectly, and the hens absolutely love their new scenery and foraging area under the trees. When the green manure crop I currently have growing in my vege garden is ready to be dug over, I'll move them there for a few days. Was also very impressed with the speedy delivery. 3 days to arrive in the South Waikato and to a rural delivery address. Almost unheard of!

We are delighted we have found you! We love our doves and they seem to love the Omlet home we have bought from you, and built in our garden!

Again excellent service and quality product. Arrived here (Dannevirke) 3 days after ordering. Chooks love the stuff and have been picking away at it.

I bought the easy care drinker, step on feeder for smaller spaces and Omlet chicken fencing. All three products are first class and I would recommend them to anyone.

I ordered some supplies for new baby chicks. The products were as described and delivered quickly even though we are rural and on the North Island. Very satisfied with the price, quality and speed.
