    They're beautiful. My dh has two that he claimed from my last hatch. He's named them phobos and demos. It's neat to see how their coloring changes from week to week.

    I want some, but i think i'll wait until spring. they are so cute and for me living so close to Warren its important to preserve a rare breed.

    Nice looking birds and great photography! I tried taking pictures of my 15 new buckeyes but that stupid red lamp messes things up!!! They grow so fast too, only 5 days old and they've got pin feathers! [​IMG]

    Quote:Why wait!!!! Exactly my thoughts, if I’m going to have chickens I might as well have a very rare heritage breed with an interesting story behind them. And besides, I am a Buckeye.
    Quote:They mature quickly, take as many pics as you can, just cull the pics that aren’t good. They'll be gangly teenagers before you know it.
    Peace,

    I turned off the lamp for a minute and took a couple more photos. The coop is on the garage floor and I'm getting too old to lay down for closeup shots, so all my photos are from above. [​IMG]

    They do grow awfully fast, I got them in 2 days and they already had pin feathers. Now at 7 days the wing feathers are an inch long!

    I am waiting until spring because if i get day olds or egs they wont lay this year, plus i am still busy with my quail that hatched yesterday and i want to give incubating muscovies another shot. I am a implanted buckeye but my husband is a real one. whereever we lived we would fly the Ohio state flag for every game and before the buckeye / gator game my oldest went to school with a "I am proud to be a gator hater "shirt. Where did you get yours? I only want to get 2-3 of them and i havent seen them around here. Got to check the Rogers auction though.
