    I call her the Frankenturken. She looks like parts of different types of chickens all put together. She has a Turken neck, EE legs, and who knows what mix-matched patches of different color feathers. She's not laying yet but I can't wait. Should be any time. Weird looking or what?

    I think she is gorgeous.One of the best broodie's I had was a NN.DH dosen't care for NN's But I think they are Awesome.Mine was a good mama too when she hatched her clutche's, and I let her hatch a mix of diff breed's too and she alway's kept them close and well cared for.I'm sure you will be happy with her.

    I got her at a swap held by "ThePamperedPullet". I can't remember who was selling them. My DH kept telling me "Hey look at the Turkens!" so I bought one because of him. I have to admit I think they are ugly looking birds but they kind of grow on you.

    Neat looking bird! I wouldn't go so far as to say I'd want my own Frankenturken roaming my chicken coop...but she sure is something! [​IMG]

    I agree and it's a slicked back toupee.
