    So I'm wanting to Breed N N, it's my understanding that :

    An Pure Bred naked neck breed, will have Yellow Legs. ( N N ) no Bow tie


    An Mix will have dark legs, and Bow ties . ( N n )

    Anyone know, and Pic to help understand.


    I went to Breeders today, the Pullets she had were ones with Bow ties. So before I get another one, for later Breeding ( for the Bare neck ) I'm wanting to make sure it's as PURE as can get.

    I cant tell you on pureness of a nn as I know the breed has been crossed with everything almost and all offspring called an nn. But I do know that I have seen sizzles that were crossed to an nn and some came off with out the bow tie. I read somewhere one time that if you breed too many generations of bow ties to each other you can also come off with clean necked ones. Don't know how much this helps you but I hope it helps some.
