    Would love to add a non-solid color naked neck hen to my flock. Does anyone have or know where I can find chicks? I live in CA. Looking for interesting coloring/patterning! Much thanks!

    Check the naked neck thread. There are lots of people there that can probably help or might sell you hatching eggs.

    Are you looking for Bantams or Standards? I have 2 bantams about 3 weeks old that I'm considering selling...But I live in Southern Utah.

    I don't have a preference for bantam or standard, I care more about color :) want a splash, laced, mottled, or other interesting color hen. Looking for younger though, as I'm getting new chicks between june 5-10 and would want them to be similar in age so I don't have to quarantine separately....

    Trust me you will find every possible cross and color combo over there.
    Talk to DesertChic she may sell you some hatching eggs. Not sure if she ships though.
    Maybe someone sells chicks too. Wouldn't hurt to ask in that thread.

    Naked neck is a dominant trait, my turken is an olive egger. The eggs are fertilized by a Cuckoo silkie. If you are interested I can show you a couple of their chicks and we can discuss eggs.

    I've never done either yet but we are willing. I have a broody right now that I could put eggs under to get more. My wife I will look at the rules for shipping chicks. I will get pics shortly. I currently have 1 11 week old I can show you and 2 2 week olds. The 11 week old is a hen and I think the two younger will be hens as well but I am not certain. I will also post a pic of momma and daddy.
