Mine were slow to start laying as well, took *forever* and yes we have had a number of them go broody - in fact two are broody at the moment and it is funny that poor Lavendar isn't allowed in the nesting box... her 'nest' is in the 'foyer' as the other chicken is obviously higher in the pecking order and is mean about sharing :)
In theory I'd love to be able to grow them for meat but am afraid that I (and hubby and sons) would not be able to do the deed... am still thinking about fish (perch) for the same reason! We'd end up naming them or somthing silly!
What made you decide on Sussex? I have four - two light, one buff and a coronation. I picked them because they were pure bred and had good laying rates over a longer period of their life - theoretically! And they are good looking too of course :)
Are you planning on having both meat and egg producers, or just layers?
