Naked Neck Started Pullets


Described consistently by my customers as the most friendly and sweet of their layers!  I definitely agree with this assessment.  I wasn't going to ever raise this breed then my daughter requested to raise three just to see.  I fell in love and wouldn't be without them now.


The Naked Neck, or Turken, is the ugly duckling of the flock. At first, you might notice is her nakedness, large-looking head, and scant coif of feathers adorning her large-looking head. You may even think there is something wrong with her.


 However, this eclectic breed of chicken naturally has 50% fewer feathers than most standard chickens, so rest easy, there is nothing wrong with her.

The Naked Neck, otherwise known as the Turken or Transylvanian Naked Neck, originates from Romania, and even more specifically Transylvania.


So if you want to add a little “strange” to your backyard flock, then the Naked Neck is going to be your next chicken. Don’t let their bizarre feathering turn you off, because this chicken has plenty to offer.  Take some time to uncover the hidden benefits of the Naked Neck Chicken and find out how this ugly duckling turns out to be one amazing chicken.


True to its name, the Naked Neck’s most prominent physical characteristic is its naked neck. Because of their genetic   makeup , they dont grow feathers on itheir bright red necks. However, the Naked Neck still sports a dashing hairpiece atop its head in the form of a few sparse feathers. 


Since the Naked Neck is already half-naked, compared to other chickens, they do extremely well in hot weather. While your fluffier chickens may pant and search for shade, your Naked Necks will be going about business as usual.


As an average layer, the Naked Neck chicken can provide their human families with approximately 3 eggs per week. So while they are not considered to be prolific layers, they consistently lay an average amount of medium, light brown, eggs throughout the entire year—just enough for holiday baking.


The standard colors of the Naked Neck are black, white, red, and buff .  We occasionally also have blue and cuckoo.
