Believed to be one of the oldest breeds in England, originating around the time of the Roman conquest of Britain in AD 43, the Sussex is a popular dual-purpose bird for both eggs and meat. This alert, yet docile, breed adapts well to any surrounding. Today, they are also a popular breed for poultry exhibitions as well as backyard flocks.

Louis A. Stahmer (1875-1938) was a nationally known poultry breeder, judge and artist. For his paintings, he used the first prize winners at poultry shows in New York, Boston and Chicago as models, conforming to the new 1923 Standard of Perfection.

The WATT Global Media collection of poultry breed paintings (1926-1950) is the largest single collection of rare poultry breed portraits worldwide. The complete collection is comprised of 57 framed oil paintings of different poultry breeds created by three American artists, A.O. Schilling, L. Stahmer and F.L. Sewell, and was commissioned by J.W. Watt, founder of Watt Publishing Company in the mid-1920s.
