Breeder of the Buckeye has been a long hard road. But, I am starting to see my work pay off with a win ofBest American with a pullet. Very excited to see 2018 hatchings! Things have been improving BIG time!
Very excited to work with SC RIR this year and continue with the Bantam White and Black Wyandotte.

Imagenice birds!
I got started SOOO late this year with a broken collarbone and foot and then all the rain. And then of course I get a full tray and the power goes out during hatch and it was NOT during this July in Sept temps.

I just love this site...I love being able to go back and read about different breeds and read the thoughts of real folks who are dealing with them. The Buckeye is a breed that caught my attention as I read they are great mousers, they do well in our cold winters and they are duel purpose.

This pullet is a May 21, 2017 hatch
She has won Best American in her last 2 shows. We are off to another this weekend. Not too sure if she can do it again. But, here is hoping!
