    OK so I crossbred what we think to be an Americauna Roo and a Turken Hen(among other crosses). One of my new chicks looks tottally naked. It is still wet. Do turken babies look naked at hatch? Or do I have a malformed baby? It cant help that this guy has light yellow feathers where he does have them. Just let me know.

    I hope you will give him a chance to get feathers, maybe he is slower to get them. From the cross you did I doubt he will stay hairless unless the roo carries a turken gene. Maybe someone who raises them can give you more information.

    you can not carry the NN gene if you have a full feathered neck.
