Hi BYC, I was wondering what kind of chick this is. She has a naked neck. Is it a show girl silkie? And what is a turkin? Thanks!
looks to me like a silkie showgirl
Showgirl's are a mixed breed between Silkie and Naked Neck Turken http://www.mypetchicken.com/chicken-breeds/Naked-Neck-Turken-B107.aspx
She looks like a partridge(color) bow tie showgirl. Showgirls are not mixed breeds - that is in the background like most breeds. I believe you only need one cross of silkie to turken to get the naked neck features. From then on they continue to be showgirls/ silkies in the hatches. Some have bare necks for the entire length, bow tie showgirls have a puff of feathers lower on the neck.
Please visit the Showgirl thread to learn more about them. They generally are the same temperament as regular silkies and good broodies . BTW showgirls are a variety of silkie.
