Return of the Buckeye Chicken

 The Countryside Conservancy invites all those interested in reintroducing Buckeye Chickens to their flocks to attend this hands-on workshop led by Jeanette Beranger, Research and Technical Programs Manager for the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. The clinic will consist of a one-hour lecture-discussion of heritage poultry breeds, their use in sustainable agriculture, ALBC's Buckeye Recovery Project, how to evaluate production traits and practical breeding strategies for bloodline improvements.  The second hour of the clinic will be devoted to careful physical comparison of a dozen Buckeye birds in order to understand how a breeder/grower can improve commercial traits over time.
