    We were thinking about getting buckeyes this coming spring, but heard they are aggressive any truth to that?

    mine are agressive if you think sitting on your leg while eating treets is agressive. [​IMG]

    I have three hens and 2 roos. Also have 1/2 dozen other roos, and other than not letting those roos jump on the hens my roos are calm. Not as friendly as the hens, but still eat out of my hand.

    Wren is the only other with Buckeyes on here as far as I know.

    I have buckeyes too! No they are not aggressive. They are brave, not brassy or bold. They love knowing what's going on at all times, very curious about everything. They are good hunters. They have they best attitude of any breed I've ever owned. There's a picture of them sitting on my lap somewhere on this site.

    If I can help guide you, let me know.
