    Hi!

    I've caught the chicken bug, or virus or whatever. I've been chicky sitting for the neighbors and now I want chickens for my very own. Flipping through the chicken books from the library, I'm thinking I like Turkens. I don't like mail order. Anyone raising them local to Portland, Oregon ?

    Thanks!

    Ducky

    Hi and [​IMG] I have Turkens and absolutely love them! [​IMG] I am sure that someone has Turkens in your area. Why don't you ask this question on the Naked Neck thread (another name for Turkens) in this same section. [​IMG] There are some great photos there!
     
  3. Sorry! Portland Oregon and Lake Oswego and Beaverton, Salem, Eugene/Springfield all have laws against any and all UGLY chickens.

    Just kidding! I know, my son just slapped me for reading this outloud and said I should never say this on BYC. But seriously, people actually love these Turkens???

    Good luck in your search for Naked Necks. Even I wish you the best.
     
  4. Oh, and I forgot.

    GO DUCKS!

    Quote:Okay, I could believe Lake Oswego having laws against ugly chickens, they probably have laws against ugly chicken farmers, but Eugene? Ha! Thanks for the laugh!
