The Showgirl named for its " Las Vegas Show girl appearance," I mean really don't you see the resemblance? What is it you may also ask? Well it is a cross between a Silkie and a Turken. It has all the Silkie characteristics and a naked neck of a Turken. This combination has taken on a new life of its own with lots of admirers of all ages and genres.This birds calm and friendly temperament like that of the silkie makes them the ideal pet for children.They are quite a sight to see making them a great conversation piece for passserbys and looky-loos. You either love them or you don't. Most of us love them, who can resist a fluffy pom pom on a bare neck? We have excellent quality Showgirls with the finest Silkie traits of our Silkies combined with a completely bare naked neck. Maybe they should be re-named after the rock band Bare Necked Ladies.
