I'm often asked 'Errrh, what's happened to your hens?'
'Nothing', I reply, 'They're supposed to be like that!'. (enlarge to photo to see what I mean)
The bald neck is in the breed; they're known as Turkens. I believe the name comes originally from thinking they were a cross between Turkeys and Hens. Still, they're very good layers, even if they ARE a bit ugly.
Before I got them I'd insisted that we had jet black chooks (with feathered necks).... but all good plans eh? There's time!
