I have only recently had Pekin bantams , and the three I had have been bought up by a white Sussex hen!! Now the family is really lovely and so full of character. Love our company and sitting on our laps as well as cuddles. I was lucky to have a friend who gave me the bantam eggs for Millie to sit on when broody, oh what a lovely family.

I have only one Pekin, who was rescued by a friend of mine. She is a real character and fitted in fairly quickly with my other bantams. She is broody quite a lot in Summer but she also mothers the other chickens and chats away all the time. She enjoys being carried and stroked and is actually quite clever. Contrary to most information I have read, she has always laid quite a lot of eggs, though they are small, and is still laying well at 3/4 years old. She manages OK in our long grass despite her feathery feet, though they do get a bit bedraggled.
I think Pekin bantams are fun they are hardly aggressive to anyone and love a cuddle
These Chickens are sooo cute and light and are broody loads so they make great Mothers ! I love my pekin sooo much now

I have 3 of these little hens in my small back garden. They are lovely, friendly almost too friendly when they think you have food! I just wish I had known quite how loud they can be when they are coming into lay. We now call them the peacocks...so far the neighbours haven't complained but my husband has!
If like me you live in a terraced house and your neighbours are close just a small word of warning, they aren't very big but they can really make their presence known! Wouldn't be without them though...if the neighbours let me:)
A beautiful friendly little bird with a trumpet rather than a cluck: sounds more like a penguin! Always ready for a cuddle but will go broody at the drop of a hat. Eggs are small and adequate but unfortunately not a regular occurance. highly recommended for people with small children and garden lovers as easy to handle and do minimal damage to lawns , flower beds etc
Great to have in the garden but to unreliable in the egg laying part
I have had pekins for a few years now and i have about 50 i love the way they are so friendly and they love all the attention. They will just stand and look pretty for as long as you like and they are a pleasure to keep and very easy to look after. Best garden pet.
