Pekin Bantam Hen Gold Partridge


The Pekin Bantam, originating from China is a ‘true bantam’, meaning there is no large fowl counterpart. There has been some confusion as to whether they are a small version of the Cochin. They are indeed similar, but different enough (developed in the UK), to be classified as true. In addition, the Cochin bantam does exist as a separate breed in other parts of Europe and America.

Pekins are a docile, friendly breed, quickly tamed and make a perfect pet for children of all ages, easy to handle and love a cuddle. They are an ideal bird for a small scale back garden set up, being far less damaging to your lawn and flower beds than many larger birds would be! They make an excellent broody and mum to their chicks should the chance arise.

These small round birds with feathered legs and feet can live up to ten years. If you class eggs as a bonus when keeping these lovely little birds, then you won’t be disappointed, their eggs are quite small, and numbers are around 110 white/cream eggs per year.

    Our Pekin Bantams are guaranteed hens and vaccinated (cockerels often available upon request).

    You can simply call into our farm (during our opening hours) to have a look or buy birds.  You can also reserve birds through our website for collection from the farm.  Reservations are made against breed types and not specific birds, so you are still able to choose the birds yourself when you collect.  Making a reservation ensures we keep that number of the chosen breed for you.  Once we have received your order, we will check the stock levels and contact you to confirm their availability. If any of the birds ordered are not available in the current flock, we will let you know when we will next have them and if this is not acceptable then we will issue a full refund of your deposit.

    When purchasing poultry from us please either bring your own carrier, alternatively, our cardboard boxes or carriers are available to purchase on our website, pre-ordered with your birds or in our shop.

    If you have not placed an order or have not received our confirmation, please contact us before making a special trip to our farm to avoid any possible disappointment.
