    Yeah they are advertised as pekin and i think they are. I just wanted to know if they are good quality pekin a. If they are i would buy them. I don't know their size since i didn't see them in person. Only saw the pictures.

    I had a pekin hen and she was lovely. She was very friendly. She was a noisy hen I think she thought she was a rooster lol x

    Thanks everyone for your answers.
    @hybridchucks
    When you said it I do see a little resemblence with an astrolorp. But we do not have this breed where i live so it cannot be a mix astrolorp. The hen I'm pretty sure she is a pekin. It was the rooster that i was more concerned about.
