    Yesterday, I send my son over to a neighbor to pick up 6 Americauna chicks...he came back with 4 Americauna chicks and two Transylvanian Naked-necks (Turkens, to some folks)!

    These are two of the most butt-ugly birds I've ever seen...naturally, my wife has already named them, so I reckon they're staying! [​IMG]

    Hope they're both hens...

    HAHA!! Tooo funny! I agree on the "turkens" They are odd looking. A face only a mother could love. Gotta love kids...picking out something odd like that hu?? Congrats on the new additions tho!

    The more I look at them in the "nursery" I set up in the kitchen, the more I think they look just like little buzzards!

    I totally agree with the whole buzzard thing!!! Everytime I see someon eselling them I'm always like.."why?" I'm sure you will get a lot of attention from your little buzzards!!! With me I normally end up loving the ugly ones the most:)

    That is a funny story. What's up with your location Republic of Tejas? Last time I checked it was still Texas. [​IMG]

    We have two naked necks that just hatched over the weekend and I am in LOVE [​IMG] I always thought they were the ugliest things until now.

    My daughter thinks they're ostriches and actually checked out a book from the library yesterday to look them up!!!

    Quote:Texas (Tejas is the original spelling) is still a republic...the rest of America just kinda hangs around, hoping that our [​IMG]-factor might rub off on the less fortunates... [​IMG]

    My "buzzards":

    "Turkey Buzzard" and a couple Americauna chicks
