Wonderful heritage breed

Buckeyes are very handsome, large red chickens. The only breed of chicken developed in the state of Ohio and by a woman, they are a must have for the heritage chicken owner. They are very hardy in cold weather and I have not seen any problems with them in the middle of summer. They tend to be an independent bird and do well in a free range environment. Excellent mutli purpose breed (meat and eggs) and I have found that they are highly desirable in the chicken fancier market if you would like to produce chicks for resale.
