So the buckeye assn got back with me on the new pics. He's just great. There are buckeye breeders in Sparta, where I got them. The dark girl does appear to be one, other could be. Hard to tell with the lighter color. I think they are nhr's. the dark is a buckeye though. Thanks Liz! She just isn't as fluffy, more hard bodied, than an ideal buckeye.

9 chickens and 4 eggs most days . I know for sure 3 RSL's are moulting, It's been 3 green eggs and one or two brown ones lately. I noticed that my dom has a bald spot on her butt! She doesn't seem to be moulting other places, it is nothing but bare skin when she bends over in a roundish area right under her vent. Keeping an eye on it. She has been laying eggs this week, but slowing down. Her and the RSL that is not moulting are 2 weeks younger than the other RSL's. It rained today and the moulting girls looked soo bad and kinda funny when wet!
