Naked Neck chickens are very hardy, active and vigorous birds. They are raised as a dual purpose breed and suitable for both meat and eggs production. Hens are good layers, producing good number of brown eggs. They are good foragers and will be happy in free range. But they can also tolerate confinement well. They are pretty cold hardy, but require protection in extremely cold temperatures because of their lack of feathers. They are excellent and even can perform better in very hot climates. They are very placid, calm birds and are easy to tame. Naked Neck chicken is resistant to disease and very strong. So this breed can be a perfect choice for the small farmers.
