    Mahonri your naked neck is absurd [​IMG] he is SO wonderful! What do you call him?

    I have had to go back and look at him a couple of times to make sure I saw him right the first time.

    I have recently bought 3 balck Naked necks and think mine look like little vultures.....I love this breed, they just don't look real. I'll cross mine with my Brahma so I have chickens who look like the feathers have slipped!

    So trying to restore a bit of sanity and getting back to the original topic, what is the best sort of Naked Neck and the best type of Silkie?

    I have been trying to find naked necks or showgirls around here, but no luck. New projects can be discouraging some times. [​IMG]

    Yep it takes a while to get your nice showgirls if you are going to start from scratch.

    You start with a Bantam NN, Breed to a beautiful full beared full crested Silkie, take the Offsprings from them, the nn ones and breed to full silkies, and so on and so on till you get the good quility of them.

    Breed a silkie roo with a turken hen.
    take those offspring/ the daughters & breed, the N-Neck ones with silkie & N-Neck traits, back to their silkie dad.

    it's easier to just buy some than to make them.

    So I’m wanting to make Showgirls and I have some really nice ones to start with. Can I breed Showgirl to Showgirl?

    Dunlap Hatchery has naked neck bantams. That is one half of the formula.
