The Buckeye breed was admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1904. It was developed in the "Buckeye State" of Ohio as a dual purpose breed with the distinctive color of the buckeye nut. Breeds used in its development include Cornish, Game, Rock, and Cochin. A Mrs. Metcalf of Warren, Ohio, was the developer of the Buckeyes.
