Behavior and character
Sussexes are docile yet confident and friendly hens. They are very curious gallinaceans that can follow you around the garden to enjoy your company or wait for treats.
With children, Sussex hens are almost nannies. They are so soft that they tolerate even the most clumsy hands. So you can easily involve your children in raising these hens and make good memories for yourself.
This breed is so unaggressive that even the roosters are gentle. Therefore, they should not be placed in the company of races that are too dominant because they will be at the bottom of the hierarchical ladder and risk suffering from bullying.
