    My naked neck chicks have a bulge in there lower neck, It appears to be chick food in there. Is this there crop full of food that I am seeing? It does not seem to affect them they are running around like chicks do eating and drinking and pooping like everyone else. Thank you for the info.

    I have a showgirl cockerel, but no babies yet. It sounds like it's just food though. The lack of feathers would make it more noticeable, I would think.

    Yes, it is food. I have naked necks and love them. Even as adults, I can see their crops just under their feathers. No biggie. Enjoy your birds...Shay

    Yes, that is a full crop. Don't worry unless it is gassy and yucky.

    ATTENTION: Now that I have your attention I need to say thanks to everyone here. What a great bunch of people, I apreciate your timely responses. These naked neck are so ugly there cute my son picked them out after my daughters seen a picture and were appaled. They are only 3 days old. I wish I would have ordered more now that I have seen them in the flesh. In the Flesh "naked neck" gotta love the pun.
