I am new here and have decided Buckeye's are the way to go for me here in SW Ohio. I was looking for a breed that could tolerate winter and be good layers. I would love a few hens as it's just my husband & I but not quite sure about the rooster! I will be doing free range with coop and screened in run during the evening/winter time. I have 12 acres. I'd be especially interested in organic birds.
