Re: Buckeye Owners Please Check in Here

la-chicken, I am so pleased to hear of this organizing of a Canadian club for the buckeyes, I always wondered why there was not one in Canada, and now we are going to have it.  Just fabulous!  Have a wonderful day, CynthiaM.

I am very excited about this news as well.
When ABC approached me to start a Canadian Club I couldn't believe it.
This group has been mentoring, supporting and states the true for me!  At times it was harsh, but they have given me the confidence to be a breeder and not just an egg hatcher.

I truly hope the Canadian Club can be the same for others.  Help this glorious bird to become the bird they once were. 

Now to design a logo, by-laws, website, Facebook page, club t-shirts, club table items................this is going to be fun!


Home to: Buckeyes: I am very passionate and devoted in breeding Buckeyes. I am a breeder that is always improving the breed.  I want to breed a buckeye that Nettie Metcalf would be proud of.
               Looking forward to getting the Canadian Buckeye Club up and running under the umbrella of American Buckeye Club.

What happened to your Buckeye?  :crying:

I don't know, I wasn't here.  It happened on the first day of a two week vacation.  It could have been worse from a breeding point of view.  It could have been a Houdan or a Cornish.

When my farm watcher texted the news to me I asked...black, brown or white?  When she replied "brown" I breathed a little sigh of relief.  I knew I had two more of equal quality.


Embrace your mistakes....they are life's most meaningful education.

Re: Buckeye Owners Please Check in Here

Hope there are lots of pullets, you will probably find at least one cockerel amongst them!

Me too. If I have space I will keep 2 boys in all my breeds pens, if not more-most of my breeds are pretty tolerant of extras.

Re: Buckeye Owners Please Check in Here

That great Buckeye temperament seems to be passed along to crossbred offspring, too. Love this breed.

Re: Buckeye Owners Please Check in Here

When I go into the rooster house all the Buckeye roosters run at me, just to say hello, no other breed does that!  They wind around my legs like affectionate cats!
