Pros: They recover from injury and sickness very quickly. Great in droughts. Easy to pluck. NN gene is dominant. Tasty meat, huge eggs.
Cons: I don't have enough of them. They take about an extra month to grow for meat compared to other birds because they tend to be bigger.
These are the most delicious birds ever. I read that they were bred in world war I by countries in Europe to improve the amount of eggs/meat of chickens. The breed was almost wiped out in world war II as the chickens were killed to feed soldiers. They lay huge brown eggs. I recently got a straight run of them but it looks like I mostly have cockerels. Take a look here for the wonderful history of the naked neck! http://breedsavers.blogspot.com/2011/05/naked-necks-chickens-that-looks-like.html
