    I am so excited I got some showgirl chicks. They are in the house right now with a light and all. I am wondering in the winter do they need extra care because if no feathers on their necks?

    I don't think so, breeds like Turkens do well even though there are no feathers on their necks.

    Thanks I have on more white one and then a turken came with them too. I am thinking I can breed the turken and my silkies and maybe get a show girl?

    Yep, that's how most breeders get their showgirls, by crossing Turkens with Silkies. Here's a link:
