INDIA - A poultry breeder has developed an exotic variety of Polish chicken without feathers on its neck.

Naveed Qureshi is a third-generation breeder of exotic birds. He has a collection of 30 birds like Partridge Silky, Frill Polish Golden and Silver Lakavenclark, which have evoked interest among spectators, according to The Times of India.

The hybrid combines the virtues of Polish species, which is resistant to many diseases and known for its tasty meat.

"One has to wait at least for eight generations to confirm that a chosen feature obtained from cross-breeding sustains in the offspring," Mr Qureshi explained.
