I had a buckeye roo that really took to my silkie hen (white). The female was brown with a black tuft. The males were absolutely stunning, but had a pretty aggressive personality.

Would the Buckeye be the rooster?

The Buckeye will give a pea comb to the offspring, although if you cross with a single-comb breed, the offspring will have a larger pea comb than the Buckeye parent.
Other than that, they will look a lot like Rhode Island Red crosses (which are much more common, so easier to search for pictures of.)

Buckeye x Rhode Island Red = both parents areabout the same color, chicks are too.
Buckeye x New Hampshire = both parents are about the same color, chicks are too.

Buckeye x Buff Orpington = all chicks red/brown/gold, likely to be a shade in between the dark of the Buckeye and the light of the Buff Orpington; may have black tails or perhaps white ones (depends on what genes the Buff Orpington has, and I don't know that.)

Buckeye (male) x Delaware (female) = sexlink chicks. Females look mostly like the Buckeye, possibly lighter shade of red/gold. Males look mostly like the Delaware mother.
--or-- Buckeye (female) x Delaware (male) = chicks that look mostly like the Delaware father (both genders look alike)

Buckeye (male) x Barred Rock (female) = sexlink chicks. Females are mostly black, maybe with red in their neck/breast as they grow; males black with white barring (probably hatch with a white spot on the head.)
--or--Buckeye (female) x Barred Rock (male) = chicks that look mostly like the Barred Rock father (except both genders have the darker barring usually found in female Barred Rocks.)

Buckeye x Jersey Giant Black = black chicks
Buckeye x Jersey Giant White = black chicks (but carry the recessive gene for white)

Buckeye x White Leghorn = probably white chicks with a few black feathers here and there.

Buckeye x Easter Egger = color of chick varies, depending on the color of the Easter egger. Chicks could match either parent, or be different than either.
