The Buckeye variety is a true Heritage Breed chicken with a rich midwestern history.

This is an AWESOME chicken for Alaskan flocks! Buckeyes are very cold hardy and resist frostbite thanks to their small comb, small wattles, and dense feathers. They are natural foragers and mousers. 

They are a Dual-Purpose breed that features rich, brilliant red plumage, yellow legs, and a pea comb. They are good egg layers (250+/- per year) and grow rapidly making them a true dual-purpose farm chicken.

They have an easy-going demeanor and are not inclined to be shy. The Buckeye is the ultimate combination of beautiful plumage, utility, and hardiness for the backyard flock.
