    A Showgirl is even more evil than a silkie. Showgirls put
    off low levels of Gamma radiation also.

    a showgirl is a naked neck silkie. the only difference is the showgirl has a naked neck.

    thats how they were made, but if you now take a pure turken and a pure silkie and breed them you will not get qulity. you need to take one showgirl already made and breed with a silkie only. It took generations of breeding to make them look this good.
