    I love the little black skinned chicks, Kassaundra....very cute.

    My own two little light ones are feathering out very differently....not sure of their parentage, though.

    I went to a local fair that had all livestock for show and even chickens, there were alot of chickens many breeds but when I was looking I couldnet find a naked neck around so asked a staff member if there was a naked neck here, he said "no, there a ugly breed"... Why are people biased to naked necks?

    Has anyone won a show with a naked neck?

    Yes a few folks on here have shown NN in Georgia. Nava in Florida is one of our favorite breeders and Kev in southern CA is our top genetist as well as Dipsy Doodle Do in GA who makes crazy mixes. Only certain colors are accepted black,white, red are on the list of those colors that are considered standard. There comb must be a straight comb and a good one at that. Many of us here on this thread like to mix up our breeds to make our own quirky birds.
    NNs are a breed that you either appreciate or not. Not many on lookers are neutral in their opinions ?

    They are all very cute but I am liking that little brown fuzzbutt! I love the black skin on the NN's.

    Jaxom is a cutie pie, he carries the scaleless gene and is very naked. There was a medical scare w/ him, but he has recovered very well (accident not illness)
