I have wanted this breed since the first year I started raising chickens. I am from the state of Ohio so I really wanted to add them to my flock. I've also heard they are wonderful chickens, docile and hardy and I love the dark chestnut coloring. Each year the hatcheries sell out before I could buy and and I had a hard time finding a breeder in my area. Tomorrow I am receiving 6 less than a week old chicks from a new friend I met at our swap last month. She lives on the coast and is breeding Buckeyes. Best deal: she will take back any boys that I get in the bunch if I can't sell them. It's a completely win/win situation! I'm so excited to get these little cuties!!!
