    A homeless person gave me a hen. She has feathers on the front of her neck, naked on the back of her neck, kinda like a turkey-neck, but not quite. She's small, about the size of a big silkie, but with regular red feathers and a tuft on the top of her head...???????? [​IMG]

    Naked Neck or Turken mix maybe with a siilkie? Look up "showgirls" Beautiful Turken / Polish crosses. [​IMG]

    Showgirls are a Silkie x Turken, there is no Polish in them. A picture would really help, but it most likely is a Turken.

    Thanks Illia for the correction. I have the turkens just don't have the silkie part down right. But I really do like the showgirls.
