Named after the nickname of the state in which they were founded—Ohio—Buckeyes are a heavy breed weighing seven to eight pounds, with rich brown plumage with gray tips on their tail feathers.
This is the breed most people have in their mind when they think of chickens: white feathers, yellow legs and beak, with a red comb and wattles.
The Dorking breed is one of the oldest domesticated breeds, originating during the period of the Roman Empire, and taken to England during the Roman Conquest of that nation.
This breed is just as the name implies—giant! This largest of chicken breeds weighing in at eight pounds or more.
