    Here is a picture of our two naked necks when they were about 15 weeks old. We call them double trouble. They are the bosses of the chicken yard.

    They're so cute! I loved my naked necks. Wish I still had some. When we moved, we gave away our entire flock, and when we got new chicks there were no turkens in the batch [​IMG].

    Here's my old girls:

    I just bought at the Ohio Nationals a Bantam Turkin sooo cute, but I was hoping Mo had a boyfriend I want a couple Pullet Standards for the farm they would have to live with the Coppers andBLRW but I just love them, where did Mo and her friend come from a hatchery or Breeder, Would love to find a breeder with eggs. to hatch later this winter.
    They must be a riot together,!!!

    Mo and Connie both came from Ideal Hatchery. I got them as day old chicks. They are both beautiful healthy birds.

    I have no idea how old this juvenile delinquent is but she is all of about 10 ounces and lays a perfect white egg every day.

    Quote:They are a chicken, and no, they don't get frostbitten more easily. They are very cold and heat tolerant. I don't live in a miserably cold climate, but my turkens never had a problem through snow and cold, and we had a horrible shelter for them.
