    Hello everyone! I'm Turken1964! Creative name, I know, haha. When i found out about this page, I got extremely excited. I love chickens, and I thought this would be an amazing place for me to make friends, ask questions, and learn more about raising chickens! I used to have six chickens, but I sadly only have one now, the one you see in the photo. It is a Naked Neck Turken! ( Heres more about the breed ) They are funny creatures, but one of my favorite breeds! She's a tough fighter, that's been through a lot, but she's still kicking!
    So, I hope you all have an amazing day/evening/night (Whatever time zone you're in)! Goodnight!

    She is very pretty. Did you know there is a variety of the Silkie breed, called "Showgirls," (name applies to both genders). They can have completely naked necks or a bow tie of feathers near the upper throat. They have continued the basic silkie demeanor, broodiness, and coloring. Put "show girl thread," in the search box if you would like to see some.
