Buckeyes

Post by Stellap » Sat Jan 11, 2020 3:00 pm

Just wondering if there are any buckeye breeders in Ontario. Appreciate any info. I know of the lady in Alberta but was looking for something closer.

There was a very active member of this site that bred buckeyes...she became disenchanted with some of the commentary so quit coming round but she had some nice birds...i will see if i have a line on her current status..

You could try Skara Brae Farms. Not sure if they still have them but are listed for sale.

@Stellap I see that Performance Poultry have Buckeyes available as chicks if you just wanted some pretty birds for your coop. They may or may not have them available and they will likely not know until nearer your preferred pick-up date if you went that route.

I've dealt with Performance Poultry and they are awesome! 2 hour drive which in itself is not that big a deal but was checking for something closer. DC HERITAGE would be 1.5 hours but could visit my granddaughter and greatgrandson at the same time.
