Doorbell: How to Wire

How would you wire doorbell if you had front and back run 18/2 to the panel and from the panel ran 18/3 to the chimney. In the chimney black connected to the front, red connected to the back and green connected to the trans. My question is how would you wire everything by the panel?

I think your auto correct is playing with you. By "Chimney" I'm guessing you mean chime.

Green to one terminal of transformer
Black to one wire going to front button
Red to one wire going to back button
Connect a jumper from the unused terminal of transformer and connect the unused wires going to the front and back buttons.
