    We bought them from Atwoods. They were shipped from Ideal Poultry. I was looking at Ideal's website and they do sell Buckeyes. They were from the red pullet bin.

    I'm pretty sure buckeyes have pea combs, these are all singles. They make me think of Brown Leghorns, I could be wrong.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about buckeyes having a pea comb. I have another chick that I am pretty sure is a brown leghorn. These don't resemble her that much.

    The leghorn is the one with the dark stripe down her back.
