    The white/yellow one with the feathers on the feet and the bushy head... Could that be a white silkie? Possibly. Did you get it from the assorted bantam bin? Never mind.

    Partridge Cochin Bantam
    St Run

    Partridge Cochin Bantams are probably the most striking and beautiful of all the Bantam Cochin varieties. The male pattern of plumage is entirely different from that of the female. They require double mating for the production of outstanding males and females; therefore, greater numbers of breeders are required.
    Standard weights at maturity are male-32 oz, and hen-28 oz.

    White Pekin Duck
    St Run

    White Pekin Ducks, which belong to the Heavy Weight Duck Class, are the most popular of all ducks. In the United States, White Pekins are raised more than all of the other breeds of ducks combined. They have become very popular because of a combination of traits: hardiness, good fertility, excellent hatchability, calm temperament, large size, superior growth rate, excellent feed conversion, yellow skin and white plumage.
    Standard weights at maturity are males-9 lbs. and females-8 lbs.
