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.
Excellent service. Very helpful and great to be able to pick up pellets in Stoke as I live in Nelson City.

Bantams got used to eating from it within 2 weeks.
While I kept the lid open with pegs to begin, I put some cardboard on the sides to ‘force’ them to feed from the front.
I’m saving money and the feed stays dry during any rain - great value for money!

I ONLY BUY WOOD SHAVINGS FROM APPLETONS, AS THEY ARE ALWAYS CLEAN AND NATURAL, AND OUR CHICKENS JUST LOVE THEM IN THE HOUSE AND IN THE NESTING BOXES.

I recently discovered my chooks had mites and that my stocks of Smite were very low. I ordered my resupply from Appletons online and received it within the week. No problems with any aspect of the transaction. The website is easy to navigate, payment is easy, and the communication on each stage of the order was excellent. Absolutely will use Appletons online shop again. Totally fuss-free.

Very easy to order didn't take long to arrive. Took 3 hours for two of us to put up. Easy. Fantastic coup. Would it be possible to give indication of shipping costs at time of purchase.Love the helpful tips written on the wood. Made putting up easier :)

Awesome product, my 3 indoor only cats absolutely love it. Very well made and I don't have to worry about my cats getting out, would definitely highly recommend this enclosure. We purchased the 4m x 3m walk in one and with a bit of DIY managed to attach it to our sliding door, so now we have a catio. Great service and very fast delivery.

My husband and I received and started to put our Go Up coop together today. We are very pleased with it as it is mostly together and will be a great improvement on the draughty, wooden coop our three hens are in at the moment. and so much easier to keep clean. I hope the hens will be as excited as me with their new home.
Thank you for the prompt delivery and a great product.

Fantastic product.... a few more pieces and a little more time consuming to put together than I anticipated but were absolutely delighted with the end product.
We are already looking at other Omlet items to add to / accessorise our enclosure.
Would highly reccomend
