    Hello. I am a new pekin bantam (Cochin) owner and hopefully have bought three girls?! One lavender, two millefleurs. One millefleur is darker with longer neck , bigger also. They are now 11 1/2 weeks. Please can any lovely knowledgeable people out there help? Thanks :p

    Ah lovely thanks so much [​IMG] your roo is clearly developed. I was really crossing fingers they are all girls but I think the breeder even thought the dark one was a boy! He was insisting I should have a boy to protect the girls, (which I would like to do but worried about neighbours!) the breeder also said if I had just three they would be too cold in winter. Any advice please? We are in wiltshire and I have a forsham ark where they have all upstairs for bedroom quarters.
