About Naked-Neck ChickensAbout Naked-Neck Chickens

Naked Neck chickens (also known as Transylvanian Naked Necks or Turken) are a breed of chicken that is naturally devoid of feathers on its neck and vent. They originally are from Transylvania and were largely developed in Germany.

They are often referred to as Turkens because of the mistaken idea that they were a hybrid of a chicken and a turkey. Naked Neck chickens are fairly common in Europe today, but are rare in North America and very common in South American.

The naked neck trait is dominant and is fairly easy to introduce into other breeds. There are other breeds of naked necked chicken, such as the French naked neck or Italian Naked neck, which is often confused with the Transylvanian.
