    Am I right in thinking these are Pekin Bantams? Any advice would be great!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    I am no good with breeds either! But the second pic may be a Silver Laced Wyandotte. Definitely post these pics in our What Breed section of the forums. Mountain Peeps has left you with the link.

    Pretty birds! :)

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. The top one is a Pekin or Cochin bantam (UK and US breeders are still disputing whether or not they are the same breed). The bottom one has the rose comb of a Wyandotte bantam, but its legs are feathered like a Pekin bantam, so I'm thinking it may be a hybrid. I agree with Mountain Peeps that you should post this on What Breed or Gender? Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your bantams.
