    We have successfully bred a turkey with a chicken to get the Famous Naked Necks

    + chicken

    but I won't stop there, I want to take it a step further so I've decided to take that Naked Neck hen and cross it with a duck and since the dad was a turkey I'm hoping for a ducken with a snoot.
    so I have gone and done it, I got eggs in the bator and I know I will have to do a lot of culling but some day I will have my perfect
    Ducken Key
    will keep you posted as I progress. here are the would be parents.

    that is the only hen he steps on, besides the ones from his own kind, I think he likes NN chickens * well at least one *

    Our old duck (gone now cuz of coons) use to go after our hens like CRAZY! He was so aggressive that he ended up with tons of peck scars all over his bill:
