    I ordered some eggs off ebay. Is it bad to breed a naked neck roo with a naked neck hen? Geneticlly? Like it is with frizzle x frizzle?

    No problems with naked neck to necked neck breeding. That is how you get more naked necks.

    Just responded in other thread- it is utterly adorable and perfectly all right. [​IMG] Once it's a little more dried off, take a tissue or very soft towel and rub it to help the fuzz 'fluff up'.

    I admit I was slightly horrified and scared when I first saw her...then realized she looks phallic...[​IMG] then I held her and sang to her and I am completely in love. [​IMG] Her "buns" are fluffing.....so cute!
