    to add to the above, the colored egg gene is very closely linked to pea comb gene. so if you want colored egg layers, keeping pea combed birds is the way to go.

    however if that isn't important.. feel free to breed your NN roo with anything you like. breed with barred rocks to make barred NN, to delawares to make NN with white bodies and barred tails.. several on here have projects- like the Hoodias- NN crossed with Houdans, someone is working on NN polish.. there is already a well established NN presence in silkies- Showgirls. the possibilites are endless.
    Have fun!

    Is this breed especially broody? I have heard that Silkies and Cochins are the best broodies but I came across quite a bit of evidence to suggest that Turkens not only go broody often but are great mothers. I am looking to add a broody breed to my flock to hatch the occasional small clutch for me once a year. Any input would be great!

    Thanks!
