Can someone please enlighten us as to the colour of the Pekin on page 5 if this thread and posted by linb879 at the bottom of the page. We too have 2 pekin girls who look identical to this one and we'd love to know the official colour. We bought them as being Silver Partridge but, having 2 proper coloured silver partridge hens, they are a lot lighter in colour; they are lovely though. Do we have a new and exciting colour here?

Hi Linb879

I put the link from this thread showing your hen and I have had a response this morning saying that they think she is a Salmon or Silver Wheaten. I don't know if anyone else has any better suggestions. The lady who answered my post said that she herself is not an expert on Pekins, but at least she took the time to reply. Here is the link to it http://www.kelseyinfo.co.uk/cgi-bin/yab ... 1250889000 :-)

I have been told that our two identical hens are Silver Wheaten - pale ones. However, we have been breeding them both, alongside two Silver Partridge hens, to a Silver Partridge cockerel and they are breeding identical babies to themselves :-)

I have completely changed my strain of Mottled Pekin`s now. As the previous stock had fading mottling as they grew. :( The strain i have now are hatching Black Mottled and Blue Mottled . And are from a top show strain . It is all in the genes.

I have a pair of pekins in a Forsham 603 ark(we also have 4LF in a separate house rather like a Broughton)I'd like to get a couple more pekins but I think the forsam ark is too small,how much space do I need for 4 pekins,they free range for at least 50%of the day.I would have room in the other house for another couple but we have never managed to get the pekins in with the others and somehow I rather think they are better in separate houses.
