Pekins are classified as "true bantams" meaning they have no large fowl counterpart. These friendly and feisty little bantams lay around 180 eggs a year. With their fluffy feet they are not destructive or messy, making them perfect for those with small gardens or children who want some pretty pets as well as tasty fresh eggs! Pekins come in nearly 30 standard and non-standard colours.

Blue pyle pekins are a "blue partridge splash", because the blue gene does not produce all blue birds (blue + blue = 50% blue 25% black, 25% splash) this translates into partridge as blue partridge+ blue partridge= 50% blue partridge, 25% gold partridge and 25% blue pyle. A very pretty and unusual colour.
