These birds are a heritage dual purpose breed. They grow very large with roosters dressing out at weights of 4 to 6 pounds at 18 to 20 weeks. Buckeyes are a sustainable bird - bringing meat and eggs to the table year after year - We have found it takes less feed to raise our Buckeyes to 20 weeks than it took to raise broilers to 8 weeks - they eat more like a normal chicken:)
Buckeyes are also excellent layers for those looking just for the laying flock. Very docile and personable birds, they make an excellent backyard or family farm bird. One of the fabulous things about our heritage birds is that they will dependably lay for you much longer than hatchery type birds which usually stop producing well by around age 2 - our birds should lay well into 5 or 6 years!
