    An adorable little girl!!! She is perfect for my Showgirl project. Homozygous for the Naked-Neck gene, so all of her chicks will have Naked Necks.

    Thanks so much for your comments. I guess she is a she and I am going to keep her. Very friendly, I feed them by hand sometimes. I have two, one has some feathering on the neck and slightly bigger, but look the same. They are twins.

    Things are good here. I am going to post pictures soon of my Showgirl project. I have a Frizzled Showgirl rooster and a regular Silkie feathered Showgirl rooster so I will have two pens. Each guy will have 3 or 4 hens.

    That girl is awesome. I have one very similar but with a bowtie and a larger puffier crest.
