    My pure breeds all lay brown eggs. If the NN is crossed with another type of chickens (so will have a naked neck but a lot of feathers at the front of the neck rather than a little bow tie) the hen may lay other colour eggs,depending on the parent bird.

    Green eggs - Then it's a cross. The Naked Necked trait is dominant, so it is easy to cross them out to other breeds, and the birds will still look purebred, since very few people actually know what a purebred Naked Neck is supposed to look like. [​IMG]
