(We only ship 1-24 Hatching eggs of any breed or combination of breeds at a time. The amount of eggs that can be purchased from each breed will vary depending on breed, number of laying hens and availability. You are not required to get a full dozen, and we can do combo orders between different breeds/colors)
Na/Na - The Genotype for any bird that has a homozygous dominant naked neck, meaning it has a full naked neck and no bib (sometimes referred to as bowtie).
Na/na+ - The genotype for any bird that has a heterozygous naked neck, meaning it has a naked neck and a bib.
na+/na+ - The genotype for any bird with a regular neck. In other words, chickens with this genotype do not have a naked neck.
