His neck appears very naked which means that he has two genes for nakedness. If you have hen with similar nakedness you are quite lucky as it is difficult to find this bird with both genes. Maybe I an not seeing him correctly. Keep posting new pictures please.
Thank you for the comment!
He is very big and very naked. I agree about his feet. They are freakishly large! He has maybe 5 feathers that try to grow on his neck though they don't do the best job.
When he was first born, I asked on this thread about him. I was worried because he had so few feathers and I thought something was wrong. I was told he was likely pure for nn. I don't have any as naked as him. I have two hens with bowties and one that turned out feathered that I kept from the batch I hatched. I got the eggs from BYC member Soggybottom.
I will try to get some pure hens to breed in the future, I'm on the lookout and am open to breeder suggestions.
How do the genetics for naked necks and feathered feet work out? Could I get feather-footed naked necks?
I am surely a convert to the wonderful naked neck. I think they are amazing.
I'll take some pictures of him and his sisters later. Here are some from his chickhood.
