    How long does it take a Buckeye, (real Buckeye, from a breeder rather than production stock from a hatchery) to reach maturity?

    What age do the hens begin to lay, and are they a broody breed?

    How long does it take a Buckeye roo to reach about 5 or 6 lbs.?

    Thanks for any info. I've looked at the breed websites, and they give some general info (and they all have the identical info, copied and pasted all over the web apparently), but not what I want to know!
