    Wanting some Naked Neck's real bad! Who can help me learn about them before I just jump out there and get chicks? Experienced Naked Neck owners will be ideal but all experience is welcome! Thanks for sharing![​IMG]

    Well, I wouldn't say I am really experienced but what I can say is that I love my NNs [​IMG] I purchased 4 from the local feed store 13 weeks ago as a 'gag' gift for my daughter for Mother's Day...went back less than a week later for 3 more cause no way was she getting those original babies!!!! My sons and I fell in love!! They are the sweetest, most easy going chickens [​IMG] So, when I found out that my four were all girls, I set out to look for a man for them. Flew, yes flew, up to NY where I picked up Charlie [​IMG] I love my NNs and would have more if I could. Hopefully, next Spring, I will have a bunch of little NN babies running around [​IMG]

    Here is my 16 year old with his favorite....
