Buckeye chickens are dual-purpose, heritage chickens known for their luscious meat and their wintertime production of medium-sized, brown eggs. They are active foragers and a calm-natured chicken breed, making them ideal for backyard flocks and pasture-poultry applications. Buckeye chickens come in large-fowl and bantam sizes.
Nigerian Dwarf goats are perfectly scaled miniature dairy goats. Nigerian Dwarfs give up to two quarts of 6- to 10-percent butterfat milk per day. Nigerian Dwarfs, particularly bucks, have been used to develop a number of other small breeds, including the six breeds registered by the Miniature Dairy Goat Association (Miniature Alpines, Miniature LaManchas, Miniature Nubians, Miniature Oberhaslis, Miniature Saanen/Sables and Miniature Toggenburgs), the Miniature Silky Fainting Goat and the cute, fleecy Nigora.
