A Heritage Chicken Breed – The Sussex!

A Heritage Chicken Breed – The Sussex!

The sussex chicken has its original in the United Kingdom. It was developed as a dual purpose breed, both for meat and for the production of eggs. Many of us will remember our grandmothers having a few sussex in a pen in the backyard, usually light sussex which have white bodies with a bit of black around the neck, in the wings and in the tail. They have a reputation for the being the typical heritage chicken.

Some Important features of the breed

As a breeder of sussex we need to know a little more about what we want in a good one. When looking at examples of sussex chickens, one should firstly look at the ‘type’ or the shape of the fowl. It should be wide or broad it should be deep and long with a flat back. They should look longer than they look deep. Sometimes in the standard fowls they can get a bit shorter in the back and we should keep looking for that lovely long back and select those birds for breeding.

As sussex were a meat bird, size is also important. As long as the bird is balanced and proportional there is no upper limit for size. Basically, the bigger the better.

The breast is meant to be broad and square, and carried well to the front with a long, straight and breast bone.

The tail should be of medium size and be carried at about an angle of 45 degrees. It should rise from the very flat back.

Shanks should be set wide apart and be stocky and strong

The thighs should be short & stout.

The legs have close fitting scale and should be healthy and straight

Each foot has four toes that are straight and well-spread.

The neck on a sussex should be gracefully curved with a fairly full hackle.

The head is medium sized with a smooth face that is not excessively feathered.

The beak is short and curved and should be white or horn in color.

The sussex eyes are prominent, full and bright. The color should be orange in the Light and red in the Speckled.

The sussex comb is single and of medium size. The serrations are even, erect and fitting close to the head. There is a tendency for the front of the comb to fold in some birds and this should be avoided if possible.

The earlobes and wattles are of medium size and have a fine texture.

The sussex wings should be carried close and straight alongside of the body. A nicely tucked up wing doesn’t show black.

Sussex skin is white, and of medium texture. This is related to its history as a meat bird.

The sussex in all of its colours is a beautiful bird to keep and relatively easy to keep when compared to some other breeds of chickens. There are very good examples of Australian sussex available for those that live here.…

Exhibition Banner Stand – An Inevitable Part of a Good Advertising Strategy

Exhibition Banner Stand – An Inevitable Part of a Good Advertising Strategy

Having an exhibition banner stand is an inevitable part of a good advertising strategy, especially if a business owner represents its company at different events like trade shows, seasonal fairs, presentations, exhibitions, sales and training courses. It is extremely important to create a nice first impression, and every little detail plays a crucial role in a composite image of your company.

There are no back-ups: either you get noticed, remembered and therefore recognised, or you are completely lost in the crowd of your competitors. A proper exhibition stand, carefully designed and manufactured, will add an original touch to your presentation.

Nowadays you can afford being original thanks to the wide range of exhibition products available on the market. You can choose an exhibition banner stand which would be perfectly suitable to your business with all its peculiarities and different factors. You can go for retractable models, or perhaps you prefer modular stands, or it will be easier to grab the attention of potential clients with the help of custom build exhibition banners, or portable stands, or double side displays… Numerous manufacturers, contractors and suppliers will make it possible to get exactly what you want for a reasonable price, without exhausting your funds.

Of course, lots of factors should be taken into consideration in order to get a banner which would meet all the requirements of your business. When buying an exhibition banner stand, think about its storage, transporting, installation and disassembling. Would you prefer to do everything yourself? With the help of your employees or with a brigade of professionals? Would you prefer something compact and easy to use or monumental and sophisticated?

Of course it is better to opt for a lightweight banner which is easy to use: it will provide mobility and flexibility, which are so important in the course of trade show activities. Of course, light weight does not mean less quality: nowadays it is possible to get reliable and durable stands made of plastic, aluminium, fibreglass, pressed wooden particles, vinyl and so on.

Make sure your exhibition banner stand is flexible enough: sometimes you have to fit your presentation into a smaller space than anticipated. In this case to use a bulky stand would be a problem: not only it is difficult to rearrange a clumsy structure, but sometimes it makes it difficult for the customers to approach your place, and this is something absolutely unacceptable.

That is why it is the best option to choose a compact and flexible banner, but at the same time effective and eye catching. It should be easily and quickly installed and disassembled, by you or by hired labourer – does not matter. What really matters is time, and a successful businessman always knows the value of it.

Do not forget about nice conditions of storing for your exhibition banner stand. Of course, nobody wants to occupy too much space which would be unusable in the time periods between the trade shows. And the perspective to rent a place specially for storing bulky pieces of your exhibition stands looks even less attractive. Make sure the material and graphics of your banner will not get damaged by moisture, dust or sunlight. It would be most unpleasant to discover this just before an important event.

Here we just pointed out some general aspects of choosing and purchasing an exhibition stand, but of course an individual approach works best.…
