    I picked up my babies at the P.O., this morning. Ordered 30, got 32 (one dead). They are beautiful. I ordered the "rainbow pullet pack" from Meyer, plus a couple Polish and a couple silkies. I have one yellow chick that has no fuzz at all on the neck, up to her ears. Is this normal?

    Yep sounds like you got a Turken or Naked Neck as they are often called

    Thanks!
    DD 'googled' and found out the breed is from Transylvania. A vampire chick?
    I know: We'll call her Elvira!
