    I have been collecting eggs for my olive egger project, which includes a French blue copper maran rooster and mostly ameraucana hens. One exception in the breeding pen is my naked neck hen. Lo & behold I ended up with 4 FBCM naked neck chicks. They all have the cutest bowties. I can't wait to see how these babies feather out. [​IMG] No leg feathering on any of them.

    Technically, no. Showgirls must have silkied feathering, which takes 2 generations to get. [​IMG]


    Love the FBCM cross though. . . It will have some large "bowties" on it. I have seen and heard of Ameraucana and Easter Egger x Naked Necks, but not Marans.
