We purchased 10 chicks from Bill and his wife in March. All 10 are still doing great! These are truly beautiful birds and of great quality. Bill and his wife are so sweet. She even gave me a flat of garden plants. I can’t recommend these birds and people enough!!

Hi Bill, you may not remember me but my husband, daughters and I came to your home and bought some buckeye chicks last year in March.... in a snow storm lol. I wanted to let you know that my daughter just won Grand and Reserve Grand Champion with our two roosters that we got from you at our county 4H fair. I thought you would like to know how wonderful your birds did!!!

I got 24 chicks from this farm and they were wonderful to work with. They responded to all my questions and the chicks arrived happy and healthy. In the wake of all the industrial chickens I was happy to hear that their flock is raised without Marek's vaccination or medicated feed. That seems like a great first step to healthy chicken genes. Thank you!

I picked up my chicks yesterday so I can't speak from long experience yet. The chicks are very alert and look healthy. As you can see from other reviews, and I confirm, Bill was pleasant to do business with. I got emails/phone calls with status updates on the process from time of purchase until time of pickup. The best review I can leave is...I would do it again!

Chicks are doing great at 5 weeks. Everyone is healthy and look like Ohio Buckeyes should. I am very pleased with the purchase. All the best to you and your wife.

Love my Hidden Creek Farm Buckeyes. Even though I only have eight hens, they lay in such quantity; there's six dozen eggs in my fridge right now. Eggs are eaten every morning and used in baking. The neighbors even receive them as gifts. We get about four to seven eggs a day.

I love my Buckeye chicks I bought from here, that grew up to be nice adults, even the roosters.

Bill was great to work with, from ordering through receiving. The best chicks that I have ever received through the P.O. I can't say enough about the quality of these Buckeyes. Can hardly wait to see them develop!!

Bill and Geri are great to work with. They answered my questions and put up with me trying to find quality birds closer to AZ. When I finally ordered the chicks they kept updated throughout the hatching process. All chicks arrived healthy and very active after their two day trip from Indiana to SE AZ.

The Hidden Creek Buckeyes I bought last year have exceeded my expectations. The strong, healthy chicks have grown into beautiful and vigorous young Bucks, correct in every way and a delight to have on my homestead. Well done, Bill and Geri!

I recently obtained a dozen of Bills gorgeous buckeyes. Healthy, happy and very social babies! Highly recommend his Buckeyes if you want true quality in the breed.

My husband and I would like to send a special Thank you to Bill and Geri. They took time out of their busy day to talk with us last Sunday afternoon. They were very nice people and shared their knowledge and stories with us. Just meeting them, it seems that they take great care in improving and preserving this wonderful breed. It was a pleasure meeting them. And what better way to spend an afternoon - talking about Buckeyes!!

Susan Dowell - Dale, Indiana

Bill and Geri are great folks and have a nice flock of standard bred Buckeyes! I highly recommend them to people looking for quality Buckeyes at affordable prices.

I can't say enough good things about Bill, his sweet natured wife and their beautiful Buckeyes. We visited their farm to purchase a straight run of 8 chicks and we had a simply wonderful experience. Bill is so knowledgeable, the farm was so clean, the animals ( not just the chickens) were all happy and looked so healthy. He let us tour all the areas where he kept the chickens in their different stages. When we told him that we homeschool he took the opportunity to teach our boys about the stages of chicken growth and the difference in behavior between the hens and roosters as well as outlining what they could expect from our chicks in the first few weeks. Bill told us to reach out if we had any questions, which we haven't yet, but he made us feel very comfortable asking if we need to. Our chickens are 10 weeks old now and they are so healthy and happy. They came from great stock. Thanks for everything Bill.
