That looks fowl.

From our Orange Country Trip:

The other day I was watching a chicken busily rummaging through her feed bowl and thought: 'oh dear, this poor hen must be at the bottom of the pecking order, some of her neck feathers are missing'.

And then she straightened up.

She supposed to be missing feathers, evidently.

My friends, I give you the TURKEN, also known as a Transylvania Naked Neck Chicken.

Why is this a good thing? Frankly, it looks cold. And chicken skin is really, really ugly.

This breed even has it's own wiki page, natch. Check it out here.
