Pekin Bantam

Breed Rating (59 Reviews)



The first Pekins are said to have been stolen from a private collection held by the emperor of China in Peking around 1860. Another story states they were imported from China around 1830-1840 and were presented to Queen Victoria. These imported birds were then crossed with other breeds and are now know today as Pekin Bantams.


The Pekin is a very gentle bird. They are good layers of small eggs but are broody, making them great mums. They make excellent pets for children as they are tame. They settle very well and require little space. Pekins can look rather pale and anaemic if not allowed on grass to forage. They tend not to scratch around in flower beds so are good birds to keep in an urban garden. They are normally a robust and long-lived bird that loves company.


Pekins are a very popular breed here in the UK. They are available in a whole range of colours. Lavender, blue, silver partridge, red partridge, blue mottled, Columbian, cuckoo, mottled, buff, black, white and wheaten. With all their feathers they actually look larger than they really are. All colours have short legs and feathered feet and toes.

Brilliant - Nina, Somerset,

Great pets, good eggs, KFC survived a fox attack 21/2 years ago, now second years worth of chicks, she has sat there for 35 days now being patient as had to wait to get eggs, and they took more than 21 days to hatch, so will post some photos later as activity is still happening

breed - Venusspecimen,

what a lovely breed to own. clean small tidy birds that look wonderful and walk like they're cross country skiing.

- Ryan,


Good pets - Baronet,

I have a trio of mixed shades of white,Brought six over from UK to Latvia when I retired just to have them in an extra large garden to grace the sweeping lawns to my villa. I then lost two to a loose and ugly dog. Now having great problems trying to build them up into a steady flock. No one over here has any idea of adoring them.Not one have I seen in four years. I now have a Dutch breeder who sells at shows in Germay and Holland. I do so hope to be able to buy his show winners and start the only Pekin/Cochin breeders sales on this side of the world as England has no idea where the hell we are I cant deal with them. Pity really as the desire to have a flock of these lovely balls of feather is burning us up. Wonderful for you all but in fact the hardest job of searching ever done in my life trying to find a supplier or breeder this side of the ocean,

Family - Schirstan,

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.
