    Here are my chicks-I tried to feature the Buckeyes as someone was interested in them. (They are the ones with yellow heads and redish body). Enjoy![​IMG]

    They seem brave, my G.Lakenvelder chicks are more careful.

    This pic show their feather pattern & color well-it will be interesting to see how they develop.

    Wren, thanks for posting the pics of the buckeyes. How neat are they?? I have never seen them before and love those markings. I can't wait to see their progress. Keep us updated with pics. [​IMG]

    Cute! I read somewhere that the rooster crow is like a dragon roar! Is that true? [​IMG]

    I don't know what the roo's sound like, I ordered these. Dragon's roar huh?[​IMG] I can't wait to hear that! It's a lot to ask from such a little bird. I will say that out of the dozen or so breeds I've had, I have heard one noise from them that was new to me. One of the chicks would stand still, stretch and say, "Cheat choo cheat choo cheep!" then poo. [​IMG] Maybe baby dragons do this? I would love to know more about this breed. I learned about them at the ALBC check out the threatened breeds of cattle, horses, poultry, sheep and see an adult buckeye roo at http://albc-usa.org/cpl/buckeye.html

    hen thanks for your interest! How about I post again in one month or so, I'll let you know. BTW If you come to Iowa I might have a pair with your name on them!
