The Speckled Sussex
S. Edwin Megargee, Jr.

The Sussex fowl, is one of the oldest breeds in existence. The revival of the breed in England dates back even further but in this country (the USA) the first importation was made in the early 1900s. The Speckled variety being the first brought over. This variety upon its arrival encountered very strong opposition from the Jubilee Orpington, then already established. The Jubilee Orpington was notoriously one of the greatest pieces of poultry plagiarism ever foisted on a gullible public, being nothing more or less than a Speckled Sussex under another name. In this connection it is interesting to note that when the Orpington Sussex controversy was at its height a prominent firm of Sussex breeders repeatedly won with Speckled Sussex in the Jubilee Orpington class at Madison Square Garden.
