    I love naked necks [​IMG] (or turkens as we call them)!! All of mine actually tend to be on the quiet side lol. They are adorable when they are fuzzy yet but I think they are pretty darn cute even when fully grown!

    When I had them, my NN girls were the noisiest birds I had. They talked constantly and were so friendly. Gosh, I really miss them!!!

    I have had the opposite experience. I have 4 pure NNs, a NN/brahma and a NN/EE. My naked necks are bossy, but not loud. My salmon faverolles were my noisiest birds. After I lost them to a hawk and summer heat, my speckled sussex's took over as the noisiest.

    I have 2, and they are definitely the noisiest and friendliest birds I have. They were the first to lay as well. I'm sure you'll love yours! What a sweetie!

    Quote:She is bossy too, I can't believe how she is hen pecking the others already. She is the boss of this group I just wonder how she will fair when they join the older flock. Ethel has her work cut out ( my current boss) I named the nn Elvira.
