    Beautiful coloring! Once my 'bator is empty, I may try hatching some of those beauties! How is their temperment?

    Thanks for the encouraging words, I am glad to hear that my efforts have not gone to waste. My wife mentioned that the roosters look small in my arms, the roosters aren't small, I'm just big.

    Quote:Mellow...... They free range around my house all day, one of my buckeye roos have NEVER attacked anyone including my 4 year old. I really am surprised (our other roosters used to attack him daily). To me they are almost too docile, I couldn't imagine a buckeye roo ruling any roost that had roosters from other breeds.

    Quote:It is all at this time.

    Beutiful photos, I cant tell how Lg the combs are, you said frostbite isnt a problem. Is you coop insulated?

    Quote:Nope, the coop is well ventilated, with deep litter. I have always understood a insulated closed coop is not good for the flock, if it is not windy and above 20 I open a window to allow for more ventilation.
    The buckeyes are known for their small pea combs, less uncovered “skin” to have to deal with. This is a close up of my most mature male (he's 2 ½) his comb is less than ¾ of an inch high.

    Wow, Dave! I am really impressed with the work you're doing with this breed. I will be sure to pass along your info to friends looking for cold-hardy birds.

    Nice job! Thanks for being such a responsible steward of a breed in need of support.

    Very nice Buckeyes. I have been raising for several years also and agree that they have a lovely temperment and are very cold hardy.

    Good job on the web site.
