Coronation Sussex Description

Coronation Sussex are very rare. They are a new breed for us to stock and are very similar to the Light Sussex however where the Light Sussex has black neck hackles, wing tips and tail tip, the Coronation Sussex has a pale grey in those areas. We are fortunate to have these in our breeding flock with two magnificent cockerels. Grayson and son of grayson. We havent thought of a name for him yet.
