Speckled Sussex.   "...great layers of tinted or light brown eggs - lay right through the coldest weather...fat-bodied and not prone to flying when mature, so...easily fenced. In England, they used to be THE standard table bird, before the modern Cornish Crosses came along...forage well and are economical eaters...friendly and easily handled...curious nature...camouflage from predators...tend to get more speckles after each molt, so get prettier with age."
