    But that is my 6 year old sons favorite chickens. He has one right now that just started crowing recently,. He can get it to play dead,lol. It rides in my daughters play shopping cart, in a basket on the bicycle and he can lay it on a blanket and cover it up and it will close its eyes and act like its asleep. He even painted its toenails. Yeah, i know poor roo with pink nails,lol. But they are sweet and easy to work with. Everyone thinks he is just the ugliest thing ever. But he is so ugly he is cute.

  2. Hi, I'm partial to Naked Necks myself.
    Sounds like you have a special one!

    We have recently gotten a naked neck and she is the nicest bird! Very personable! We love her.

    I LOVE Naked Necks! I have 10 Standard Pullets and 11 Bantams or assorted sexes. They are one of my favorite breeds. Not only are they beautiful, they have such amazing personalities! [​IMG]
