    In recent days I've asked several questions about my turkens and never get any helpful responses.

    Does no one own or breed turkens?

    Seriously! I can't be the only one in love with their unique beauty and wonderful personalities.

    I used to have one, but then I couldn't keep her, but I do know some people that own them. I love them! Their ugly is only on the outside and makes you appreciate their inner beauty more. [​IMG] That's what they say.

    I have one! Her name is Pot Pie because that is about how big she is. She weighs 10 ounces, and goes broody more than any silkie I have ever met.

    Quote:Oh what rare bad luck. I ordered 4 pullets, but one turned out to be a roo. He's a butthead right now, suffering from testosterone poisoning, but I'm hoping he'll settle down.
    Mine are from Ideal and the pullets are beautiful. So is the roo, from the neck down. [​IMG] Only 14 weeks old and he already has long beautiful iridescent green tailfeathers.

    She has to be some kind of mutant turken. She is one of the original 6 we got when we started with chickens.

    I have a "sizzle" naked neck named Dolly and a showgirl X d'uccle one named Woo.

    What kind of question did you have or is it about the big "real" turkens?

    Woo ( It is hard to see her nakedness - she scruched her neck down):
