How long have you owned chickens?

I purchased Meyer Hatchery chicks in June 2010.

How many chickens do you own?

Six pullets, one cockerel.

What breed of chickens do you own?

My chickens are dual-purpose Buckeyes, a heritage breed that looks like a Rhode Island Red with a pea comb. They were developed in Ohio by Nettie Metcalf, the only woman to have developed an APA recognized breed. They are an endangered breed.

What do you like most about owning chickens?

They are easy and interesting. Their fresh eggs are the best tasting and good for you.

How many people (other than yourself) have you helped get started owning chickens?

No answer yet


I live in North Raleigh and have 17 Buckeye hens and two roosters.
