    I see them referred to in posts but don't know what they are- anyone with pictures?
     
  2. [​IMG] That's the very first question I posted when I joined.

    Some one put up a picture of the ugliest chicken I have ever seen. It was a show girl. I have been here 6 months and I still think they are the ugliest chicken on earth.

    Sorry to all the Showgirl lovers in the world

    I just found a picture of one. Sorry guys, but I tend to agree with enola. snicker. I see where they get their name with that tuft of plumage on the top of their heads-they do look like head dresses.

    Thanks

  6. Hi! A *showgirl* is a Naked Neck Silkie.

    I think they are enchanting, *butt* to each his own.

    I saw a post some where on here that someone had a showgirl roo named Liberace (not sure if I spelled that right) and I think there was another named Elton John. I thought that was soooo funny. I think someone should name their showgirl roo "Roo Paul"

    I think they are fantastic looking but I'm not sure they would do well in my area due to the cold weather. I'm curious about them though.
