    I saw I think what your talking about at someones house. chicken with feathers up to a long neck that was bald up to the head. she called them turchickens. 1/2 chicken 1/2 turkey kind of ugly but cool looking too.

    Sweet birds! and they love to go to the "day spa" and have the back of their necks rubbed! At least my 4 weekers do! Supposed to be really good layers but I cannot as of yet vouch for them as mine aren't old enough... yet...
    They are very sweet birds though and I am glad I got mine!
