Turken "Naked Necks" Chicken Breed Information

Originally called "Naked Necks" Chickens they were first bred in Eastern Hungary. Many believed that they were a cross between a chicken and the domesticated turkey, but this is not the case. The "Naked Neck" was a characteristic bred into the chicken to make it easier to pluck for meat and to tolerate the heat better. The Turken "Naked Necks" Chicken is noted for its size and laying ability and come in different colors. To be different add these to your collection. They take confinement well and are quite gentle. A number of the color varieties were admitted into the American Standard of Perfection in 1965. We do not offer any specific color variety of this breed. Noted feature is their turkey like neck appearance. However, when breeding and hatching Turkens only about 90% come naked necked and 10% come with feathers on their neck. We only ship you the naked neck chicks, however they will also have offspring if breed pure that will be 10% feather necked.
