What type of chick is this? Naked neck

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

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!

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.
