I've been lurking threads around here for a while and occasionally hear talk of 'showgirl chickens'. I thought these were just conceited owners who thought their girls were the best. But now I'm randomly searching fowl on the internet and come up with these super funky looking chickens! Ever know what it feels like where people around you are laughing at a joke and then the next day you JUST REALIZE what it means? Yeah, uh, that's me right now! So Are showgirl fowl basically Turken and Silkie chickens mixed? I have one Silkie roo and one Turkan hen, and the possibilities seem endless as far as I'm concerned. Just no more room for any more males. But whoa, how did this happen? And how long have they been around? Wierd looking creatures, I'll give 'em that! Can anybody give me a detailed, but slightly edited background of the 'breed'? I'll respond tomorrow. Thanks everyone!
