    Wow that is a lot of eggs! So most of them are Naked Necks? Post photos of them when they hatch.

    Most should be Naked necked, there will be a few that turn out fully feathered though, especially the Polish crosses.

    My meat birds got sniped last night! I "had to" order a bantam Cochin! So I hope that one arrives safely! It should get along with my Serama chicks!
