    Ok I was just browsing around and I have found a few threads on here where people are claiming to have "churkeys" (a turkey/chicken cross) It was my understanding that you can't cross said birds. Maybe they have naked neck CHICKENS and are calling them a churkey? Please correct me if I am wrong. Just trying to get the facts. If such a thing actually exists could someone point me in a direction to get more info. Thanks

    I have a feeling you are right about that! When we first got our turken Ken swore up and down it was a turkey chicken cross. He now knows better. [​IMG]

    I have raised and sold naked necks (turkens) and had alot of people think they were a cross breed of a chicken and a turkey. I know that they are all chicken through and through.

    Yes they are but their breed name leads people to think otherwise. They sure are silly little animals!!

    Here are some of the Naked Necks that I raised. The white hen in the back is not a naked neck but she wanted in the shot LOL.
