What is a showgirl chicken?; Nostalgia; Spring blooms

What in the world is a showgirl chicken?  It is a chicken created by crossing a Turken with a Silkie.  The offspring have naked necks like the Turken, but 5 toes, dark skin, and feathers like the Silkie.

These are rarely seen in most flocks, but they are gaining popularity and we will see them more often.  We purchased one yesterday from a breeder not too far from us.  What do you think about this little girl?
