Bantam but will mix with large fowl (excluding hybrids)
Pekins are laid back and easy to handle. They have feathered feet so they don't scratch and forage as much so do less damage to the garden. All feathered feet breeds they will require checking regularly and best kept on well draining ground or better suited in a covered run. They are marvellous, compact bantams and full of personality.
If random colour is ordered where possible we will try to send as much variety as possible but this is not guaranteed .
