In  an age when women stuggled to have their acheivements recognized, Mrs. Nettie Metcalf developed the breed known as the Buckeye from her home in Warren, Ohio.

This makes her the ONLY woman that developed a breed and kept it .  


The True “Queen” of the Buckeyes.

Buckeyes from the beginning.   Nettie Metcalf created this  type  and we need to  strive to keep this type in our breeding practices.

Yes, weight  Stardards have increased over the  years but this duel purpose bird needs to be as close to her vision as possible.  That is what Nettie would like.
