    Hey, guys. My flock has been doing good. So, I decided to see if any of you guys have any naked necks you would like to share. I love naked necks. They’re so cute and funny looking. I have twoH
    I have Kira on the left. She’s a very sweet bird. She’s like the perfect chicken. Then, on the right is Amber. She is LOUD. She sounds like a little siren. It’s very cute.

    So, if you want, post a picture of your naked neck and tell a little something about them.
    Thanks and happy holidays!

    What causes this? Do they stay naked?

    I need to get out there and take some recent pictures of mine. The NN's handled the heat the best over here during this past summer. A few of us over here in AZ. that have them are deciding to go strictly with the NN's now, and faze out our fully feathered neck flock members. I'd rather have a weird looking chicken, than one that will suffer in 118 F. temps.

    It's a gene, and is inherited like the crests or 5 toes are in other breed's.

    Well, I don’t exactly know what caused this breed. Yes, they stay naked. I think they were originally a Turkish breed.

    There isn’t a dotted line around there neck that says “cut here” is there? Sorry, that just popped into my head from an old (1950’s) cartoon.

    I have got advice that you have beautiful naked necks. So, if you want, post a picture of them. Thanks!
