Naked Neck Turken


The Turken is a light brown egg layer and is considered a dual-purpose utility chicken. It is especially suitable for meat production as the breed has approximately half the feathers of other chickens, making them easier to pluck.
These birds are cold hardy and heat tolerant, excellent foragers, and immune to most diseases.
Their appearance is rather odd and not particularly appealing to some. Perhaps this explains why they’re not usually known to be an exhibition bird.
