Buckeyes

Bryan K., Oliver of the Dominique Club of America sent these old pictures from the Reliable Poultry Journal of July, 1914 of the Buckeye breed. He also informed me of a new Yahoo group, Buckeye Breeders, http://us.rd.yahoo.com/evt=42879/*http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BuckeyeBreeders.
Poultry breeders are often far-flung in rural areas, so Internet groups are a useful way to make contact. Thank you, Bryan.

Great Pics. Hope you can help me find a pair of Buckeyes to start a flock. I plan to free range feed, and want to help keep the old and rare breed chickens alive. Thanks

Glad to find this blog and loved the old pics of the Buckeyes -- Have just started a small flock in Arkansas. The chicks seem to be as lively as promised. They were actively chasing (and catching) crickets at age of 4-5 days! Will be writing about them on my garden blog soon...
