I've got 18 Naked Neck Bantams in the bator due to hatch this Saturday. Can't wait!!!
Me either, chicks are coming next week
Where do you get bantam NN? I can't find them at the hatcheries or local.
I did some on line searching last fall because my neighbor wanted some and found hatching eggs, I think in Michigan. He ordered them and hatched them. Now I am hatching some eggs for him from his chickens. They are some good looking birds. They are reds.
My neighbor and I are planning to start selling some hatching eggs this summer if you would like to get on the list PM me and I will notify you when we are ready.
Thats awsome, my hatch is do Sunday nite/monday so im excited. At first it seemed like 3 weeks would never get here, not i dont know where the last 18 days went.
I raise Turkey-Neck bantams and have a friend that does also.
Have you had trouble with them hatching? My neighbor and myself have had trouble with them getting out of the egg and dying in the shell. Like they are weak or something? I was wondering if this is something common with this breed.
Only when I breed the ones that have little or no tuft on the front of their necks. I usally cross those to non turkey necks. Seems to be an issue with the gene. I know this sounds weired and I have a great incubator that hatches everything fine except I have the issue your having with the TNs. Try using setting hens instead. they hatch much better this way for me.
