    Ok, I think this is one of my fav. ones yet. Look at that sweet face..those eyes look so gentle. I think his coloring is very promising.

    Nice solid even buff color! Not easy to get, surprised you got that in a cross.

    I have babies tonight, and they aren't supposed to hatch until Fri.! Wow, they are healthy little/big things. Here are some pictures, and I have a question on one, don't laugh, remember, this breed is new to me. The last one that I have pictured, has a dark spot on the head, it also has some dark on the back of the neck, so wondering..if it is just pigmentation..since there is black feathering.
    Went into the room to check humidity, and heard cheeping! I say to myself, no way! Then another popped out, then another. I have used this bator many times, the temp stays the same. These eggs are huge. I really didn't think I would get any until late Fri. or maybe even Sat. Oh well..I have another one pipped, and another almost rolled over the whole egg when I was flashing the light around checking the other eggs.

    Here is the first one, holding that head up and making noise.
    I had a little Silkie hatch earlier, still trying to wake up!
    [​IMG]
    Here it is fluffed up a bit..has a nice bowtie..I think it's called a
    bowtie, like the showgirls?
    [​IMG]
    There's the second one..that I have the question about..better
    pic. coming up..the third one looks to be a light blue, guessing
    a splash. It doesn't have much of a NN..is that something that
    can happen like showgirls? Some are silkies, some are showgirls?
    It is still wet, so will be able to tell better when it dries just
    how much feathering there is.

    Here is the spot I was wondering about..dark on the back of the head
    [​IMG]
    Can see it better here..also, if you look close, you can see that
    the neck lower down has some dark area.
    Thanks for the help!

    This is the one with the spot from the front. :) Cute markings.
    No feathers on the feet at all.

    I'd love to see more pics of this guy. Is that his comb hanging in his face? He's amazing.

    The bummer is that all the featherless legged birds were cockerels...:rolleyes: ...next year I'll try it again.

    Transylvania is a part of Romania where some think that the NN originated, and Naked Neck is self explanatory.

    Thank you so much for replying to my post. :) I am reading up on them more, and am finding out more about them. I do believe that the spot on the head is just pigmentation, I have another one that hatched last night..well two, but that one looks similar to the one with the spot..but it is longer and lower on the neck. Not too worried now. :p
