  1. This pullet is a new (and accidental) color combination from my Naked Neck breeding pen.

    Is that one of those Showgirl chickens? Cross between a silkie and a naked neck.

    Im not sure "what" she is, but i LOVE her! [​IMG] She is beautifull!
     
  10. Nope, no ostriches or peacocks here [​IMG]

    Not exactly a Showgirl, more of an OddBird [​IMG]

    She is the result of several generations of Naked Neck / Silkie / Frizzle Cochin crosses --- a mongrel with history, lol.
    I have a naked neck red-topped blue silkie-feathered frizzled male (non-crested) from the same set of eggs. They might make interesting chicks.
