    The American Buckeye Poultry Club will be having our first official meeting on Saturday at 11 am in the "food court area" at the OH National (there were so many breed clubs having national meets we couldn't get a room!)

    Please come and join us to learn more about these great birds.

    Oh I so wish I could go! I'd need to get someone to stay with my elderly father and that's just not easy to do.

    Will you be publicizing BYC so anyone with breeding flocks will post their websites etc here so we can get in touch with breeders? I am planning on getting some this spring and want to make some plans soon!

    Thanks for the info and invite even if I can't take advantage. [​IMG]

    I am selling some Buckeye cockerels & will have them with me for pick-up at the sale area Friday afternoon for anyone wanting a new male.

    Quote:Not to step on toes here at BYC, but there's a Yahoo Group devoted to Buckeyes, it's the only thing we talk about there. I have asked for a breed specific page for BYC, and am told the idea is being worked on. In the meantime, you can come and talk Buckeyes to your heart's content here:

    Quote:We have not compiled a breeders list yet (I like to get folks' permission before posting their info on the Internet), but it's on my list of things to do. I do have a spreadsheet with the names of those who have told me they're happy to be contacted about birds, if you email me offline at lhaggarty AT blueone DOT net you can let me know where you are, and I can let you know who is closest to you (always best to deal as locally as possible, especially when chicks are being shipped.)

    Cheers,

    Hey Chris, you know, you can't come buy Friday if you're not an exhibitor, which I am not. So I will have to trust you to save the best one for me! [​IMG]
