    Looks like a naked neck to me. . . Did they just show up in your yard? Like someone dropped them off? Maybe some unwanted, extra roos.

    Those are Naked Necks, also known as Turkens. I love 'em!! I've got a couple of young ones, one of mine is a frizzle.

    My Naked Necks are just babies so they're on start and grow, but yours look large enough to be on a flock raiser. I think that most NN's will be medium sized birds. The 2 that I have are the first NN's that I have owned so I am not an expert. They are such cool looking chickens, I love their little toupees!!
