Gorgeous mahogany speckled girls with all the lovely sussex characteristics.
Classification: Heavy Breed
Photos to follow once the weather improves and the sun comes out!
We are delighted to see the speckled sussex becoming more accessible as a breed here in NZ. For many years they were hard to come by. We have kept them now for a couple of seasons and enjoying their stunning speckled plummage. Just like the light sussex their progeny are early to feather, fast growing and quick to mature. Our speckled sussex girls have laid well for us; they lay an average 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 late summer/autumn. Speckled 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. We also keep the light sussex and the buff sussex.
Delivery of order was very prompt - thanks.
The chickens were a little frightened when the treadle moved but have learned very quickly. After two days, they don't bat an eye.
Their food is now secure from sparrows, etc. feed-o-magic is a good choice.

Great service, prompt delivery, and clear advice to help us ensure that we can give the ladies a safe and secure home. They are quickly turning into a valuable addition to our family. Thanks!

Just wanted you to know that the Hen house is perfect. I knew it would be, but I know how nice it is to get feedback - so thank you for designing and constructing such a cool little home for the girls. Form and function!
It looks great. Thanks for making the purchase hassle free.

Great little enrichment toy for the hens. They worked out how to use it within minutes.

Thanks for your product-the chooks are happy and secure and can get out of the wind if wanted.The coop is very sturdy and I'm confident it will last for years.

Our eglu that we have for our rabbit from you is fantastic. I love that my children can easily clean and tidy the rabbit hutch and it is easy for me to move around our lawn. My children also climb inside and can happily sit and play with our rabbit too. So glad that we purchased this a few months back and I am looking forward to the same ease of care with the Cube for our chickens.

We have had chickens for about 4 years and were tired of the basic cheap wooden coops that only last so long. We looked at purchasing a bigger, better wooden one and then we found the Eglu online. It was a bit more expensive than a larger wooden coop but it will pay for itself in no time because it will last so much longer. So easy to assemble and a lot easier to clean and dry than the wooden ones (especially in winter in the South Island!) Absolutely no regrets = a wonderful product!

This is my second review for the same product but I just had to write as I cleaned out the three smelly gpiggies egloo house ( in purple) and I kid you not,it was a PLEASURE,
True, what's more they aren't nearly as smelly even after a week,it was so easy and got so clean, and they are very happy,Put themselves to bed at dinner time,no trying to find them. I can't recommend this enough 😀👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🐹🐹🐹 LJ
Definitely getting one for my big boy Robbie ( Flemish Giant)
