Light Sussex are the original dual purpose bird, very popular.
Very friendly nature and not at all skittish. Easy to look after, so also make a great first time chicken,
lays well for 2-4 years. sometimes they will go broody, but make fantastic mothers! They lay a very light brown/cream egg.
LIGHT SUSSEX - UTILITY
 
As above, but these were what LS were a hundred years ago, they are a bit stockier, have more meat on the breast, and tend to be less prone to disease. they are a bit rarer.
