Hello, I found this forum by googling "chicks with no neck feathers." My son's pre-school teacher has chickens roaming the yard. The kids hatch the eggs each year. This year, two chicks were hatched which had no neck feathers. The chicks are quite old now (months) and still have no feathers on their neck. One check does have a little bow-tie of feathers on it's neck. Is this a random mutation since the chicks were hatched this way? According to teacher, it wasn't due to plucking or anything. I don't know if it's due to the lack of neck feathers, but the featherless neck chickens have really long necks. They stick up higher than all the other chicks. Any info is greatly appreciated. Curious about chicks.
