MILO & THE CHICKENS
Pekins are ideally suited to the family garden. They have feathered feet that are unable to scratch the lawn as much as other breeds. Due to their lovely nature and bantam size they are easy to handle and make wonderful garden pets. Ours are hand reared from day one and they do get very tame (some of our Spring chicks are pictured on the gallery page). Pekin bantams lay a beautiful, cream coloured, small egg which has a relatively large yolk. In weight, 2 Pekin eggs = 1 large shop bought egg.
Milo, our dog,
very happily shows everyone around ..
Our cottage is tucked away in a rural area on the outskirts of Tonbridge in Kent.
We breed from, and sometimes have for sale, very pretty assorted coloured Pekin bantam hens. Pekins are ideal if you are looking to keep a few back garden chickens.
Assorted coloured Pekin bantam hens include gorgeous rare frizzled Pekins (one of our white frizzled Pekins, pictured below). Also, stunning flat feathered Pekins in a huge variety of types/colours including: Millefleurs, Mottled, Splash, Partridge in Lavender, Blue, Pure White, Buff/Ginger, Lemon, Chocolate Brown, Jet Black and mixtures of. (Picture above, one of our five hen houses; Dartanian, the cockerel, with some of our breeding hens)
