Buckeye Chicken

$3.65$4.95

The Buckeye Chicken was created in Ohio by crossing Cochins, Plymouth Rocks, and Malay chicken breeds.  They are a dual purpose breed that features rich, brilliant red plumage, yellow legs, and a pea comb.  They are good egg layers and grow fairly rapidly making them a true dual-purpose farm chicken.  Buckeyes are very hardy that resist frostbite very well thanks to their small comb and wattles.  Furthermore, due to their Malay ancestry they are very rugged and excellent foragers.  They have an easy-going demeanor and are not inclined to be flighty.  The Buckeye is the ultimate combination of beautiful plumage, utility, and hardiness for the backyard flock.
