    Hi. This is my 6 week old Pekin bantam chicken. Can anyone tell me if I have a pullet or a cockerel?[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Doesn't look like a Pekin, it looks more like a Silkie mix. Also I think it is a cockerel.

    The woman i got it from told me it was a Pekin. Could it be a silkie crossed with a Pekin?

    It could be, but is most definitely a mix.

    Thank you. I thought it might be a cockerel. He's a lovely chick, very friendly and loves the kids. I never knew owning a chicken could be so rewarding
