    Buckeye Breed Thread

    While Buckeyes may have slightly better breast meat portions than many other heritage breeds, please remember that none of them are going to come close to the Cornish/Crosses. Just so you are not disappointed And raising on pasture will darken the dark meat to near beef color, and there will...
