The exact origins of Naked Necks, or Turkens, is uncertain, but some archaeologists believe they originated in Malaysia and spread from there. The popular name, Turken, comes from the mistaken belief that it was a cross between a turkey and a chicken, but the Naked Neck is all chicken. The current Naked Neck breed was developed in Eastern Europe in Hungary and Romania and later perfected in Germany in the nineteenth century. Naked Necks were admitted to the APA in 1965.
