    Ahh,screw it. I called a breeder I know here that deals with NNs. I'm waiting for a call back, but if she has some available I'm going to grab a couple tomorrow.
    I can't get this cross out of my mind now!

    Well, he isn’t all that big. I think it’s the view perspective. I was down on his level. :gigBut, I do think he is pretty too. Thank you.

    The Sex Link for black skin/meat trait is that the Father will pass on the Black skin/meat trait to the females but not the males. I honestly want to breed me up a full Naked Neck male with black skin/meat and use him to breed with just about any hen and make bow tie sex links.

    Are naked necks available in bantam size?

    Great! Make sure the NN's are hen's for it to work. Keep any black NN pullet's from out of the breeding, and put them back to the daddy to reinforce the fibro-trait.

    I'm not sure if they are anymore or not. Everyone seem's to have gotten them and then bred them for bigger meat bird's, or bred them for the Showgirl's.

    Edit: Maybe if you took some showgirl silkies and kept breeding them to straight feathered bantam's you might be able to get some smaller one's.

    There are Naked Neck Bantams, I saw them on craigslist and I have seen Hatcheries that have them, if I find the link I will post it.
