“Out of the misty memory of our family farms comes a rare cluck from Ohio’s past:
Buck, Buck, Buckeye.
The Buckeye chicken, that is, the creation of Warren breeder Nettie Metcalf in the late 1800s.
Farmer Nettie was the only woman to create an American Standard Breed of chicken on her own. she was a hobby farmer who crossed one chicken with another over several years to create the Buckeye — a bronze-and-black-feathered, plump and tasty bird.”
