    i went to the local trade day today in search for a naked neck roo with no luck but did find 2 really nice white nn pullets one with a bowtie and the other is more naked and a easter egger roo. If i use this roo on these hens would the offspring inherit the naked neck gene?

    Some will inheiret the naked neck and some won't. Usually about 1/2 and 1/2, but it also depends on if the Naked Neck is genetically pure for the naked neck gene.

    I have 24 babies from this cross now. I switched my EE rooster (now deceaded) and my NN rooster around on my hens.
    Hatched out 30, lost one at about 3 days of age, sold 5, and the rest are still doing great.

    Hatch rate: 18 non neckedneck and 12 naked neck.
