    I've been on this forum for several months now and I see the word 'showgirls' often. Are they a certain breed, parentage or what? Please tell me. I have know clue what they are.[​IMG]

    Being I am a first time owner of a beautiful Showgirl (Zsa Zsa), let me share her glamour shot:

    She is part silkie and part Turken (Naked Neck). To get more Showgirls, I would breed her back to a silkie.

    showgirls were origionally a cross between a turken and a silkie. they r breed many generations back to showgirl or silkie to bring them to a silkie only carrying a naked neck gene. usually the higher the generations the better quality they r if bred right. they r a newer breed but not real new. if far enough advanced in generations they will breed true however u can hatch silkie and showgirl from the eggs. check out my website i have many pics in several colors.
