    I had a naked neck from a hatchery it was supposed to be a purebred but then again it was supposed to be a hen too. He had a pea comb a huge wide chest and short stubby legs. We sold him sadly but i love how he looked so I want to start crossing naked necks with cornishes. Would those be good meat birds ? I would sell the offspring and also show them in 4h as a meat cross

    I think they would be an excellant meat bird. I am currantly working with NN and Jersey giant crosses for the same thing. Keep us posted on your progress, and please post pictures as you go.
