The Naked Neck breed of chickens is recognized by the American Poultry Association as large fowl and bantams in five or so color varieties. As such, the breed has certain characteristics, such as body shape, feather type, size,etc. specific to the breed. Eventhough I find the different NNcrosses, like Frizzles, Polish, etc. kinda cool, The APA does not include Polish for example as a variety of Naked Necks, nor does it consider Naked Neck as a variety of Polish. The Polish (or whatever) breeders have a standard to adhere to, and the Naked Neck breeders have a standard to guide their breeding decisions as well. I have bred the crest of the Polish, the rumplessness of Araucana, the bare neck of the NN, and the slender body of the Modern all on one bird. This project fascinated me, but I never believed they were a breed...only crossbreeds. Incredibly fun, but still mongerals. I woud like to here from anyone who has crossed chickens to acieve some bazarre results.
