    I have bantam naked necks for sale, but am worried the shipping costs may be too high. (?)

    I can't find a breed association, forum, or FaceBook page devoted to Naked Necks. Does such a thing exist?

    We are experimenting with several different breeds, including Naked Necks. They are always in the top of each of our breed selection criteria. But, if we decide to breed them, I have no idea where to go to find information on the breed itself. The best lines to get. Or even the name of someone who breeds them :(

    ANY suggestions would be appreciated!!!

    Try these 2 organizations: http://albc-usa.org/cpl/nakedneck.html & http://www.amerpoultryassn.com/index.htm I do not know if a breed club exists but the APA has recognized & has had an SoP since 1965.

    THANKS! I'd been on those sites and hadn't found anything useful.

    Such a shame, they are great birds. I don't want to rule them out. But how can you do anything effective without knowledge of who the breeders are and something about their birds strengths and weaknesses?

    THANKS for taking the time to respond!
