    Welcome to BYC! Is the chick bald all the way around his neck?

    Looks like a Naked Neck/Turken, but I'm not sure on its variety.

    Yup, it's a Turken, aka Naked Neck. They lay big brown eggs, though the "exotic" extra is usually male. Hope you got a nice little NN pullet.

    Just curious because of the little patch of fur in the middle of the neck. Is that because it's a chick? Thank you all for the help.

    No, if you google Turkens or Naked Neck images on the web, you'll see the adults have a patch of feathers there as well.
